Redknapp: Spurs exit was political

Published Add your comment

Harry Redknapp bears no ill-feeling for his unexpected departure from Tottenham for reasons he suspects were "political".

Redknapp will face his former club for the first time since being fired last June when QPR host Spurs in Saturday's Barclays Premier League clash at Loftus Road. The 65-year-old's departure from White Hart Lane came despite having guided the club to a fourth-place finish, claiming a Champions League place that was eventually snatched by Chelsea.

"I've got my own feeling on what happened at Tottenham, but it's difficult to say. It was political," said the QPR boss, who was also cleared of tax evasion and underwent heart surgery last season. "I didn't have an inkling it would happen. I went to see (chief executive) Daniel Levy about signing a new contract and that was it."
