Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp says Premier League football has turned Arsenal counterpart Arsene Wenger into a nutcase. Redknapp, who maintains he has a good relationship with his north London counterpart, believes that the intensity of the English game has caused the Wenger to change.
"When Arsene first came to England I remember reading articles and they said that he was like a professor watching the game," Redknapp said.
"All the other nutters were jumping up and down shouting and screaming, hollering and hooting - and this man is not like those idiots. He just sits there and is studying every move that goes on on the pitch like chess. They didn't lose a game all season.
"Now he has joined the nutters, you know! In fact, he is one of the key nutters! That is the tension that you are under. It has affected him now."
Redknapp continued: "He is no longer sitting there now. He is up there arguing with everybody and gets into it all.
"I think he has changed. He was the quietest man of the lot at one point.
"I don't have any problems with him at all, he's always been good. Sometimes I go into his office at Arsenal."
