Uncle Harry´s sacking on Lampard conscience

Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard has admitted he feels guilty over Harry Redknapp’s sacking from Tottenham.

Redknapp was given the axe despite guiding Tottenham to a fourth place finish in the Premier League, a position which would have guaranteed Champions League football had Chelsea not gone on to win the competition.

And the 33-year-old, who is currently missing out on England’s Euro 2012 campaign through injury, believes Redknapp – his uncle – has been hard done by and feels partly responsible.

He told The Sun: “I feel really bad for Harry, especially as my biggest success in football turned out so unlucky for him.

“He deserved Champions League football. He and Spurs finished fourth. That’s why I’m still shell-shocked by what’s happened.

“I have some mates who are Spurs fans and they are desperately disappointed. They remember how they were rock-bottom when Harry came in. Then, all of a sudden, they’re playing in the Champions League and competing at the top.

“He’s done an amazing job. He did so well people were talking of him as a great choice for England and he deserved that recognition. He certainly didn’t deserve to lose his job.”
