The Croatia international was sold to Dynamo Kiev last week.
Kranjcar admitted: â€śWe all saw Harry going to England. We were all surprised England didnâ€™t make a move for him at that stage.â€ť
Kranjcar, who quit Spurs at the end of the season to join Dynamo Kiev in a ÂŁ6million move, added: â€śThatâ€™s football, itâ€™s the most unpredictable sport in the world.
â€śOf course you feel bad for him but you also have respect and gratitude for him.
â€śItâ€™s hard to comment on the situation. We all owe Harry so much. He built this team.
â€śHe took over from Juande Ramos when Spurs were bottom of the table.
â€śItâ€™s obviously hard on him but what happened between him and the chairman only they know.â€ť
