Harry Redknapp: ‘Mooro snub was criminal’

Soccer - Football League - West Ham UnitedFormer Hammer Harry Redknapp has reignited the row of how Bobby Moore was snubbed by West Ham after his playing career finish although he says he doesn’t blame the current owners.  Speaking on Kicca.com Harry said on video:

“West Ham should have brought him in not used him,  he’d have been the greatest ambassador anyone could have had”

“Of the great players in world football, Bobby Charlton is at Man United and Franz Beckenbauer with Bayern Munich. West Ham had Bobby Moore  incredible for the club you know and the greatest icon there was in the game at that time. He should have been in the front row of the director’s box.”

“He could have gone out and helped the club get young players or just to have him around the place for people to look up to. I had a picture of him in my office as big as the wall and remember saying to Rio Ferdinand, that’s what you’ve got to look to become when you become a player”

“The way he lived, the way he played, the way he was, was so special, but he was wasted”

“Nothing to do with the people there now,I’m sure David Sullivan and David Gold would have loved to have had him around to be part of the set-up and Karren Brady. But they weren’t around at the time so it’s certainly no fault of theirs that he wasn’t”

“People didn’t make him welcome as they should have been, I think it is criminal really but that is history”

  1. He was such a massive iconic figure amongst our supporters i think the petty minded people that ran our club at the time thought he might become a threat to their authority and been in a position to undermine them if he thought they were doing something wrong; because we would have listened to him

  2. Why does this idiot feel he has to keep repeating himself..? He knows if he mentions BM & West Ham he will get attention.
    Bobby Moore was & will allways be the greatest player in our long proud history, long after all the stars of today are gone his name will live on.
    so Mr Redknapp shut the fk up & stop using BM as a way of getting heard.
