Redknapp wrote in his book, 'Always Managing: My Autobiography by Harry Redknapp', which is being serialised in the Daily Mail: "My departure wasn’t straightforward by any means.
"It certainly wasn’t a case of walking in and being sacked.
"In fact, we had previously been talking about extending my contract.
"Having had these discussions, I went to see chairman Daniel Levy again. ‘What’s happening, Daniel?’ I asked. He seemed very unsure. ‘Maybe, Harry, we’ve just come to the end.’
"I wasn’t happy, but I had to accept it and I wasn’t going to let it cloud my memories of my time at Spurs. I loved every minute of it. And I am proud of my record there."
