Redknapp rues 'worst-ever pre-season'
- From the section Football
Tottenham Hotspur boss Harry Redknapp says constant speculation about the future of his players, Luka Modric in particular, has been unsettling and says this has been his worst-ever pre-season.
Speaking after his team's 5-1 home defeat by Manchester City, Redknapp discusses media speculation that Chelsea are set to make a £40m bid for Modric and that Stoke are preparing a bid for Peter Crouch.
Redknapp also adds that selling the Croatian midfielder in the remaining days of the transfer window would leave Spurs "up the swanny."
