Vedran Corluka blames Harry Redknapp for Spurs’ poor form

Tottenham defender Vedran Corluka believes Spurs’ dip in form is due to manager Harry Redknapp not rotating his side enough.

The north Londoners have picked up just one win in their last eight league games, slipping from third to sixth in the Premier League table.

Corluka, Steven Pienaar, Roman Pavlyuchenko and Sebastien Bassong all left the club in the January transfer window, while Louis Saha and Ryan Nelsen were brought in.

Nine players have started over 30 games this season for Redknapp’s side and the Croatian believes the number of games played by a select few has led to fatigue.

“I’ve watched almost every Spurs game and they played them all with the same 11, 12, 13 players,” he said.

“He didn’t rotate his players enough and that’s why they are really tired.

“Three months ago they were in the title race with Manchester City and Manchester United. Now they are three points behind fourth spot.

“Tottenham had one of the best teams in England and of course it will be an unsuccessful season if they don’t go to the Champions League.”
