Redknapp December 22nd 2012: |
"There are a lot of players at this club who earn far too much money," he said. "Far too much for their ability and what they give to the club.
“I don't really want to see the owners have their pants taken down like they have in the past”
Redknapp, 65, says the club's wage bill is too high and certain individuals in his squad are earning more than players at his former team Tottenham.
"A lot of agents made money out of them [the club's owners]," Redknapp said.
"I fined a player last week and he was earning more than any player earned at Tottenham. You shouldn't be paying massive wages when you've got a stadium that holds 18,000 people."
"Good chess players think one move ahead. Great chess players think two or three moves ahead."
