Lord Sugar blasts 'pathetic' SkySports pundits over Tottenham comments

Former Tottenham chairman hits out.

Lord Alan Sugar watches the Barclays Premier League match between Tottenham Hotspur and Sunderland at White Hart Lane on May 19, 2013 in London, England.

Former Tottenham Hotspur chairman Lord Sugar has blasted Jamie Redknapp and Teddy Sheringham.

The ex-Tottenham duo were pundits for SkySports for their coverage of the 3-2 win over West Ham.

The pair made comments reported by Sky's website urging the club to break their wage structure or risk star man Harry Kane leaving the club.

Harry Kane #10 of Tottenham Hotspur reacts in the second half against Roma during the International Champions Cup on July 25, 2017 at Red Bull Arena  in Harrison, New Jersey.

Redknapp said: "It's a case of rewarding him. Make it right that he stays at Tottenham.

"Whatever the top player in the country is on, he should have parity. It's as simple as that."

Sheringham added: "If he is not happy at Tottenham his agent will make it known and he will go wherever he wants to go, he's that good."

Sugar was not impressed, and believes there was no need to bring it up.


Former Spurs head coach Tim Sherwood made similar comments last week on Sky, and so it is understandable supporters are sick of hearing similar sentiments from pundits.

Tottenham can of course make it all go away by offering Kane another new deal, but he already signed a new contract within the past 12 months and has given absolutely no indication he wants to leave.

With Tottenham already in the top four and well positioned to mount a title challenge, Kane should have no sporting reasons to want to leave the club.
