Very interesting revelations are emerging from the Harry Redknapp tax evasion court proceedings. On Thursday, the Southwark Crown Court heard some very amusing statements from the Tottenham Hotspurs manager.
Apparently, Redknapp is illiterate. He cannot read or write. In a tape recording played to the court, Redknapp said that he did not know what an email was and that he had never sent a text or fax in his life.
”I can’t work a computer, I don’t know what an email is, I can’t, I have never sent a fax and I’ve never even sent a text message. I have a big problem, I can’t write so I don’t keep anything. I am the most disorganised person, I am ashamed to say, in the world.” Redknapp said.
”You talk to anybody at the football club. I don’t write. I couldn’t even fill a team sheet in.”
Redknapp’s revelations raise more questions than answers. If he claims to be illiterate, how did he get his coaching Licenses? And Who draws up the technical plans plays for the club?
It is hard to believe such an incredible story, however, should it be true, then you can bet that this will not be the last time you hear of it. Despite this, Redknapp is still sticking to his story as is evident from prior questionings with the police. Redknapp maintains that he had no intention to fiddle his taxes and that his accountant was in charge of all his finances.
“My accountant runs my life, I’m disorganised, completely disorganised.
“I’m not into fiddling tax. I pay a fortune to my accountant to look after me. He writes all the cheques for me and my wife Sandra, he pays my bills.”
It will be interesting to see what kind of action is taken against Redknapp. His public image and that of the club have been greatly affected and could result in him losing his job, however, that will be known when the dust finally settles.
So My question to you is, Do you Believe Redknapp’s story?
