Harry Redknapp has told talkSPORT he has not yet made his peace with Gary Neville after the Manchester United legend’s ‘disgraceful’ comments about Tottenham Hotspur.
The pair were involved in a back-and-forth on the talkSPORT airwaves and social media channels last month following Spurs’ 1-0 defeat to Manchester City in the Premier League.
The Sky Sports pundit said Tottenham teams over the last 30 years have been ‘spineless’, ‘flaky’ and ‘pathetic’ – and Harry took it rather personally.
The former manager phoned into the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast to hit back at the ex-Man United defender, and Neville then responded with a cheeky message on Twitter.
But that only enraged Redknapp even more, who came back on air to have another pop at his comments.
And it seems the two have not made up since.
- Gary Neville is ‘an absolute disgrace’ for Spurs comments, blasts Redknapp
- Man United legend in brutal response to ‘do your homework’ rant
- Redknapp still annoyed with Neville: ‘He’s not man enough to admit he’s wrong’
The jungle king returned to talkSPORT on Wednesday for the first time since winning ‘I’m a Celebrity‘ and was asked if he has made his peace with Neville. He told Jim White: “No, not really. No.
“I’ve not had a chat with him. I haven’t spoken to him, nope.
“I just thought what he said was a load of crap.
“I’m not going to sit back and let him say that.
“How can he say that about the last 30 years? I only know about the team I managed at Tottenham and that was a good team.
“We finished fourth, fourth and fifth and we had good players and played some great football.
“I had Gareth Bale, Luka Modric, Ledley King, players like that and I felt we could have pushed on and finished higher the following year.
“So to say they were rubbish teams, to label people as spineless and useless, I thought it was a disgrace to say that.
“Ledley King was getting off the treatment table and you’ve never seen a knee like it. His knee would be like a balloon all week and he’d come out and play on a Saturday. To call him spineless…
“Listen, Manchester United went to Southampton and got beat 6-3 one day when Fergie was manager- it happens in football.
“I thought we played fantastic football during that period. You look through that team I had, it was full of quality players with character. We had Scott Parker who was a great competitor, we had Crouchy, we had Rafa van der Vaart – it was a very, very good team and I was proud to manage them.”
