Harry Redknapp Tells Sky Sports Reporter to F Off: Video (NSFW)

Harry Redknapp reacted angrily to a Sky Sports reporter this weekend who called him a “wheeler dealer.” Redknapp snapped at the reporter and told him to f*** off.

Watch the above video to see the interview. Redknapp looks obviously rattled when the reporter mentioned the “wheeler dealer” point, but Redknapp seemed more incensed by the reporter’s laughter which caused the Tottenham Hotspur to put him in his place, and walk off camera.

It’s obviously a sensitive issue for Redknapp. But it’s also a mark of disrespect for the Sky Sports reporter, who should know better, to use the derogatory term. Redknapp in everything he has done, especially at Tottenham, is first and foremost a football manager. A very good one at that. Yes, he has mastered dabbling in the transfer market to buy and sell players, but the “wheeler and dealer” tag is something you would expect to read in a British tabloid newspaper, not something you would hear on Sky Sports News.
