Bent joined the Black Cats in 2009 before joining Aston Villa last summer
Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp admitted that he upset Darren Bent while working as a television pundit at Wembley.
The former Spurs striker left the club in 2009 to Sunderland for £10million before joining Aston Villa last summer for £18m.
“You’ve got to be careful. I once said, ‘My old woman could have scored that’, about a goal Darren Bent missed,” Redknapp recalled.
“Bent then sulked, rang his agent, his agent rings the chairman and says he ain’t happy and wants to leave. It was only the truth, wasn’t it?”
Redknapp also revealed that former manager Fabio Capello was angry with him after he questioned his tactics.
“I did an England game at Wembley about two years ago and I said ‘I can’t believe we’re playing Steven Gerrard on the left wing’, he added.
“Fabio got the needle with me because he thought I had criticised him and he didn’t like it, but I was only just giving him my opinion.”
