Redknapp, who managed Tottenham between 2008 and 2012, thinks the Tottenham players are responsible for Pochettino's sacking.

"When people talk about the players all loving him, if they love him that much, maybe they should have all started playing a bit better.
"They've got him the sack, at the end of the day. They haven't performed well enough, that's why he's lost his job. If they all loved him so much, perhaps they should have done a bit better for him.
"That's why you get the sack. They've had one Champions League final; if you look back at the run, everything went their way a little bit. They've not won a trophy in five or six years with an incredible set of players.
"People say they need a better squad; have a look at them, they have four international full-backs, internationals all over the place, England internationals, all kinds. And up front they're not short either. They're massively underachieving at the moment."
