GOT WRIGHT STUFF Gun­ners leg­end’s warn­ing for Spurs

Midweek Sport - - THURSDAY MARCH 15 - By FRANK MCCAULEY

wait and watch them get reeled in be­cause even Man City, with the money they have spent and ev­ery­thing, are get­ting reeled in.

“Tot­ten­ham are hav­ing a great sea­son, but the fact is they don’t know how it is to fin­ish it off at this stage – which is the prob­lem they’re go­ing to have now.

“They lost against Ever­ton, they got mur­dered by Arse­nal and lost to Man United.” He added: “When you pull that many points back, it gives Arse­nal more than a good chance of fin­ish­ing above Tot­ten­ham.

“Arse­nal know how to fin­ish the sea­son and stay in that top four.

“Spurs, mean­while, are still find­ing out what it is like to be in there, stay in there and the pres­sure of hav­ing to win games.

“I think Arse­nal know that and it has just been good to stay close enough to get the points where they can and now we are one point be­hind and right amongst them. I think we can fin­ish third – no prob­lem.”

Some pun­dits have sug­gested talk link­ing Spurs boss Harry Redknapp with a move to Eng­land has de­railed his club, lead­ing Wright to ques­tion why the Tot­ten­ham man­ager would want the post.

“Harry’s got a lot of the jour­nal­ists where he wants them so he’s kind of sweet with ev­ery­body,” he said. “But if Eng­land don’t play well, they’ll turn on Harry just like they turn on any­one.

“It’s a nightmare job and, of course, it’s meant to be the job you as­pire to as a man­ager.

“It’s meant to be a job you take at 60 or 65, but why would you want to take that kind of job at 65?

“It’s just health prob­lems nowa­days. Harry’s had prob­lems re­cently, what does he want that job for?”
