And there it is. Harry Redknapp has officially left his post as the manager of Tottenham Hotspur. The club confirmed the news via a statement on their website tonight (or early this morning, in the U.K.). They did not specify whether Redknapp quit, was fired, or if the two parties went their separate ways via a mutual agreement. This isn't terribly relevant, though I'm sure some of you care. What's really important is that Harry is well and truly gone, and that all of the rumors we've heard since the end of the season were true.
Daniel Levy's quotes make it sound like Redknapp was sacked, or that there was some sort of mutual agreement.
"This is not a decision the Board and I have taken lightly. Harry arrived at the Club at a time when his experience and approach was exactly what was needed."
And here's what Harry had to say.
"I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at Spurs and am proud of my achievements. I have had a fantastic four years with the Club, at times the football has been breathtaking. I am sad to be leaving but wish to thank the players, staff and fans for their terrific support during my time there."
Well, that's it. Holy cow. We have a lot to talk about, guys.
