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.

Welcome Mauricio Pochettino! I hope I get to see one of his Spurs teams play but I can’t get to WHL til November so it’s probably 50/50.
