Berbatov sulks don´t help - Redknapp

Portsmouth boss Harry Redknapp believes striker Dimitar Berbatov is contributing to Tottenham´s current plight and has told Spurs counterpart Martin Jol: "You´re better off without him".

Jol has seemingly teetered on the brink of unemployment since Tottenham´s awful start to the season in August and Monday´s 3-1 defeat at Newcastle heaped more pressure on the Dutchman. Bulgarian striker Berbatov has played a far less prominent role so far this campaign and appeared reluctant to come on as a substitute at St James´ Park this week.

And Redknapp said in his column in The Sun: "The very last thing boss Martin Jol needs right now is Dimitar Berbatov spitting his dummy out because he´s not in Tottenham´s starting team every week. We all saw what Berbatov is made of when he was sat sulking on the bench at Newcastle the other night with a face like a big baby."
