Harry Redknapp has refused to lift the ban on Tottenham players having a Christmas Party, The
Two years ago, Spurs striker Robbie Keane took his team-mates to Dublin for a night out behind Redknapp’s back. Once the Tottenham boss found out, the players were forced to donate £300,000 to charity and Keane’s days at Spurs have been numbered since. Redknapp insists that his squad are not too fussed about missing out on a party. Earlier this week, Manchester City, Arsenal and Newcastle players all held their festive parties.
Redknapp said: ‘We are too busy playing football – they can have a Christmas party in the summer. They are earning fortunes, have great careers and lives, so they can get on with their football instead of causing problems at Christmas. Players don’t mix as much as they used to – they are on computers all day, not talking to each other’.
Spurs have been in fantastic form and have lost just once in 12 league games. They face a difficult task against Sunderland, with new boss Martin O’Neill, on Sunday. Redknapp still believes his side can push for the title and their exit from the Europa League on Thursday could give them the chance to maintain their title ambitions.
