The Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp has revealed today that he believed that he had an agreement with Joe Cole that he would join Tottenham before the ex-Chelsea star went to the World Cup, but he changed his mind at the last minute when he was offered more money by Liverpool!
“We are disappointed to miss out on Joe Cole because he was a great free transfer – he must have had a better offer from Liverpool,” Redknapp said.
“I spoke to him a month ago and I thought he was coming here. He wanted to come to Tottenham.
“He had made his mind up – I had no doubt about that. But a month went by and Liverpool moved in.”
But Harry still believes that Spurs can still challenge for the title, even without Cole. “I feel we could contend for the title; we have got the players here,” Redknapp continued. “We have to aim for it. We could win the championship.
“Last year, we went in saying we wanted to finish in the top four and if you don’t aim for things, you have no chance.”
To be honest, I thought he would go to Tottenham as well Harry!
