Redknapp: Some players did not want to play for England

When I was at Tottenham, when full internationals came around, there were two or three players who did not want to play for England.

They would come to me 10 days before the game and say, 'Gaffer, get me out of that game, I don't want to play in that game'. I'd say, 'you're playing for your country, you should want to play'.

(They would say) 'Nah, my girlfriend is having a baby in four weeks, I don't want to play' and that is the truth, so it makes you wonder.

Mauricio Pochettino is the new manager of Spurs. Needed to get that tweet out quickly before they fire him.

On a serious note, I like Pochettino's style of play. Could be a really good appointment if he's given time, support and a say in transfers.

Pochettino 'honoured' to become Spurs Head Coach

This is a Club with tremendous history and prestige and I am honoured to have been given this opportunity to be its Head Coach.

There is an abundance of top-class talent at the Club and I am looking forward to starting work with the squad.

Tottenham Hotspur has a huge following across the world and I have great admiration for the passion the fans show for this team. We are determined to give the supporters the kind of attacking football and success that we are all looking to achieve.
