Redknapp blasts 'arrogant' Mido over Sol taunt
Harry Redknapp has blasted Tottenham striker Mido as arrogant after the Egyptian reportedly described Sol Campbell as the 'easiest player I have ever played against'.
The Portsmouth boss, preparing his team for tomorrow's Premiership trip to White Hart Lane, was furious at the 'insult' towards a player who has been crucial in Pompey keeping five clean sheets in six league games this season.
'What an arrogant thing to say,' Redknapp told The Sun.
'It's an insult coming from somebody who has not achieved as much as Sol has in his career.
'It shows a total lack of respect and those comments will embarrass every footballer in the game as we don't talk like that about fellow pros.
'I'm sure his manager at Tottenham will also be embarrassed when he reads those remarks as it shows Mido has no real feeling for the game over here.
'One thing is for certain, I won't have to say too much to my lads in the dressing room at Tottenham.
'I'll just stick a newspaper cutting up on the wall and that will do for me.'
Redknapp snapped up England defender Campbell, 32, on a free transfer from Arsenal in the summer, a move which has so far proved one of the bargains of the season.
Mido, on the other hand, has failed to find the net for Spurs since completing his £4.5million move from Roma at the end of August.
He said he was 'not scared' of Campbell and is confident of breaking his duck soon after scoring 11 goals while on loan at the London club last season.
'I came to Tottenham because I know I can score goals for the team - but I have only been back here for four games,' he said.
'I have never had any doubts that I would come back here and score. I am disappointed with some of the chances I have missed but I am still confident.'
