Tottenham boss Redknapp: Bale critics don't understand football

Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp says people criticising his team tactics don’t understand football.

Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp says people criticising his team tactics don’t understand football.

Redknapp was criticised for playing Gareth Bale on the right of midfield for their defeat at Everton.

But he barked: "We haven't a natural wide-right player apart from Aaron Lennon but Gareth can play there.

"People who moan don't understand the game. People switch wingers now.

"Lots of left-sided, left-footed wingers play on the opposite side. It happens all the time.

"Bale likes playing there. He plays there for Wales and Gary Speed played him there all the time. He played wide right — he didn't play left.

"He did all right against Everton. He did better than he has done on the left in the last few weeks — it's not a problem."
