Assou-Ekotto surprised by Redknapp exit

Published Add your comment

Tottenham left-back Benoit Assou-Ekotto was stunned by Daniel Levy's decision to sack Harry Redknapp.

Spurs chairman Levy took a huge gamble this summer by sacking Redknapp - a man who had delivered fourth, fifth and fourth place finishes during his time as White Hart Lane boss. Levy replaced the 65-year-old with Andre Villas-Boas, who has made a disappointing start with one loss and one draw.

Assou-Ekotto appears convinced Villas-Boas has the credentials to succeed at the north London club - but conceded it was surprising to hear Redknapp had been dismissed. He said: "I was very surprised. I was surprised because I don't think there are a lot of managers who finish fourth and they are sacked."
