Tottenham Dismisses Manager Harry Redknapp After Wednesday Meeting
Premier League Tottenham Manager Harry Redknapp "has been dismissed" after Chair Daniel Levy "refused to grant him the contract and assurance that he wanted," according to David Hytner of the London GUARDIAN. The manager was "forced to confront his exit strategy and has reached a settlement" on the final 12 months of his deal. The decision was made after lawyers from both sides met Wednesday night to discuss the remaining year of Redknapp's contract, worth £3M ($4.7M) (GUARDIAN, 6/13). THE HUFFINGTON POST reported that Levy "summoned" Redknapp for Wednesday talks "over what was believed to be Redknapp's compensation package" (THE HUFFINGTON POST, 6/13). THE SUN reported that Redknapp "thought he had done enough to earn an extension." However, Levy "was believed to be unhappy that Redknapp failed to secure Champions League football" despite occupying the third spot for most of last season (THE SUN, 6/13).
