Tottenham boss Redknapp: Defoe raging against me

Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp knows Jermain Defoe is unsettled.

Defoe has seen his first team path blocked by the arrival of Louis Saha.

"Jermain's not happy - he's probably got the raging hump," said Redknapp. "He wouldn't be happy he's not playing. He wants to play.

"He might have seen a chink of light when Pav went, but then Louis came in and it was the same situation. We needed that extra striker, really.

"Jermain came on the other night and scored two and he's bursting for a chance. But Louis has scored three since joining us.

"It's a changing mentality in today's game that didn't used to happen. The same players would play all the time."
