The story of Redknapp's departure

BBC Sport looks at the story behind Harry Redknapp's surprise departure as Tottenham manager after four years in charge.

Redknapp had guided Spurs to three top-five finishes in the Premier League but, despite having a year left on his contract, he reportedly failed to agree a new deal with chairman Daniel Levy.

He joined Tottenham in October 2008 when they were four points adrift at the bottom of the Premier League and guided them to a first-ever Champions League campaign in 2010.
