Spurs boss Harry Redknapp has come out swinging after Arsenal goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny told reporters last week that, 'We are four points behind the other north London club - I am not going to say their name - and hopefully we can challenge them. '
'Hopefully Chelsea can challenge them for fourth place and I would be really pleased to see them in the Europa League next season. That would be fantastic.'
But Spurs boss Redknapp had a pithy response when quizzed in his Friday press conference around Szczesny's comments, 'Szczesny says he is coming to get Tottenham? Oh yeah, yeah, he does have a lot to say Szczesny, doesn't he?' Redknapp said.
'I'm a big fan of his, he is a fantastic goalkeeper and he could end up being one of the best goalkeepers in the Premier League but he does come out with some stuff doesn't he? He was having a go at Chelsea the other day and god knows what.
'He is a fantastic goalie, but he should just keep doing what he does.'
Redknapp went on to profess his disaste for players commenting on their rivals, 'I don't like it,' he said. 'There is no need for it. Just get on with it, just get on playing.
'You weren't allowed to speak to the Press when I was playing. If you got caught you got a fine of a week's wages, which was about £7.'
Given Henry James Redknapp's favourite pass time of winding down his car window to greet passing reporters and his infamous treatment of transfer targets, ('He's a triffic player that we like, but we have to be respectful' etc), I'd say he's spent a good chunk of his management career making up for the press embargos he suffered as a player.......LD.
