Premier League - Redknapp 'told Suarez wasn't up to it'

Harry Redknapp has revealed that he opted against signing Luis Suarez because he was told by scouts that the Uruguay star would not cope in the Premier League.

... I guess Tottenham needs some new scouts.

Sticking to old scouts wud be a better option as far as the top 5 clubs are concerned :)

I thought Suarez rejected Tottenham?

He did. He chose Liverpool. I don't know why Redknapp is squawking like he would've got him if he wanted.

Probably just trying mind games before the game. If I remember correctly, he also apparently tried to sign Carroll, Aguero, Llorente, Forlan, Rossi, etc. And he got none of them.

Tottenham are like City. They don't have actual scouts. They just listen for whatever players other big clubs are interested in, and then they try to act as if they discovered them.

Well maybe this was the real reason?? The rejection was probably to make it look better to Liverpool fans. Who knows? We never will but one thing is for certain when he first came it looked like he couldn't make it and then came out of his shell. Can he keep it up now for next season? Liverpool fans certainly hope so!
