QPR boss Redknapp slams ex-Chelsea fullback Bosingwa

QPR boss Harry Redknapp slams former Chelsea defender Jose Bosingwa in his new book.

Redknapp also reveals Ryan Nelsen branded the Rs locker room the worst he had experienced.

In his new book, 'Always Managing: My Autobiography by Harry Redknapp', being serialised in the Daily Mail: "Rangers had players like Jose Bosingwa, who just six months earlier had won the Champions League final with Chelsea, but he wasn’t going to give his all. I found out the extent of the problem after we beat Fulham and Bosingwa refused to sit on the subs bench. I’d had problem players in the past but I thought his attitude was disgraceful.

"I fined him two weeks’ wages — and that was when I got the shock of my life when I found out how much he was on. Bosingwa’s salary was ridiculous.

"The problem was, he wasn’t the only one. It was scary. Within weeks I had worked out that my best player was Ryan Nelsen, a 35-year-old New Zealand international — and he couldn’t wait to get out.

"‘You’ve got no chance,’ he told me. ‘Not a prayer. This is the worst dressing room I’ve ever been in in my life. You haven’t got a hope with this lot. I don’t know how you solve it.’

"The attitude stank. Attitude towards the game, attitude towards training. I can’t remember a worse one — and behaviour like that cannot be altered overnight."
