Speculation on the internet messageboards claim that all is not well between Spurs chairman Daniel Levy and Redknapp. Harry’s contract at the Lane expires next summer and there is talk that he could depart the club.
Fans seem split on the future of Redknapp after the disappointment of missing out on Champions League football for a second season in a row. The Spurs players are known to love playing under Redknapp so if he were to go then some big names could follow him out of N17.
“I’ve never had a problem with Daniel Levy,” he said on Sky Sports News.
“I’ve probably got on as well with Daniel as I could any… People keep talking about our relationship. I’ve never had a minute’s problem with Daniel Levy in terms of falling out with him or whatever. I don’t even know where that comes from.
“The simple situation is, I’ve got a year left on my contract. It’s up to Tottenham whether they want to extend that contract or not. If they don’t extend it and I go into my last year, it’s not an easy one when players know you’ve only got a year left.
“It’s not a case of me looking for security. What it’s about is players knowing you’ve only got year left on your contract and knowing that it doesn’t work, basically.
“I think it’s a situation of, ‘well, he might not be here next year’.
“You don’t let players run into the last year of their contract if you think they’re any good, and you don’t let managers run into the last year of their contract if you think they’re any good.
“It’s up to Tottenham. If they think I’m okay and I’ve done a decent job an deserve an extension, they’ll give it to me.
“If Daniel doesn’t think I’m worth it, that’s up to him, that’s up to the club. There’s nothing I can do about it.”
On suggestions he could be heading to Qatar, he responded: “I don’t speak to anybody else – I’m under contract at Tottenham. I keep seeing something about Qatar – I’ve never even been to Qatar in my life!”
