Where it all began:Ian Abrahams @Moose_talkSPORT: Hearing from 2 sources UNCONFIRMED Harry Redknapp has left Spurs – I am trying to get official conformation
Now surely he should know that putting that on Twitter was going to start a shit storm if it wasn’t confirmed, so I beg the question why tweet it if it isn’t confirmed!
Being that he works for talkSPORT means that his comments are going to hold a lot of weight with his followers and so when he says a suggestive statement like that it is only going to ignite twitter into a trending rage.
But it doesn’t seem that it was just him that was unprofessional, in my eyes anyway, as Paddy Power were happy to get involved on Twitter as well.Paddypower @paddypower: Breaking: Harry Redknapp is leaving Spurs. We’ve got our hands on the resignation letter
Maybe it is just me, but I feel that if you are representing a multi-million company then you shouldn’t be getting involved with stuff like that. Me on the other hand, until I am a earning a large sum of money, I might.
ESPN did some actual journalism and asked the man himself to which he said “No, I haven’t resigned, and I have no idea why it is being suggested that I have resigned.
“This is an outrage; an absolute liberty for people to be putting around this kind of rumour on the internet. It is not true, there is not a chance I will resign. Why should I? I have a year left on my contract.”
So the majority of Tottenham fans can sigh with relief while some Tottenham fans I know will be upset that he is staying. I for one think he and Tottenham go well together and the sooner they get him a new contract the better, for them.
