Harry Rednap has named two of his worst signs, both in West Ham


Harry Rednap has revealed two of the worst signings of his 34-year career in football management – and both played under him in West Ham.

Known for his bargain purchases in the transfer window, Redknapp may be claiming some top-notch signings over the past years with Peter Crouch, Nico Kranjcar. [of course] And Paulo Di Canio is featured in that category.

But even the best can be mistaken, and when I was a celebrity on a reality show Get Me Out of Here, the former Southampton, Portsmouth and Spurs boss opened up about his bad signings.

First, Redknapp talked about Marco Boogers; The player who brought the Bolin field from Sparta Rotterdam in 1995 for £ 800,000.

He was shown a video of his playing ability where he looked like a “different class,” but his demeanor made him feel let down.

“Boogers’ attitude is stank from this word,” Rednap said.

“Whenever we went to the race, he was in the backseat. He didn’t want to work. He was lazy and all the players took an immediate dislike to him.

“I think you could say he played a little bit, but he certainly wasn’t that impressive in the video.

“He was declared ‘mentally unfit for football’ – meaning he persuaded doctors to come up with some excuse as to why he couldn’t return – and disappeared somewhere home.

“We finally found him hiding in the caravan of Holland and got him back by reading the Riot Act.

“But when he returned, his attitude was not good and in the Dutch league we beat him to Groningen.”

Rednap named former West Ham striker Florine Raduccio as another bad signing.

The Romanian international, who played for Verona, Brescia and AC Milan before joining The Hammers, was initially impressed with Espanyol in 1996 after he was paid £ 1.5 million. However, things did not go as planned.

“The first day in training I worked with Raducioiu for a couple of hours and I have to admit that he influenced me. He was a quality finisher and I thought he would be successful.

“But the moment we got into something physical, they didn’t want to know.

“He couldn’t face it in any shape or form. Dixie [Julian Dicks] He was eager to get inside to see what he had done, but Raduccio made it clear that he would not challenge anything.

In his first two appearances, Raduccio did nothing but stumble over the rough treatment he had received from the opposition’s center-half.

“Don’t ask me to explain how a former world-class player could suddenly become a fan, but something happened to Raduccio and he lost it completely.

“He was standing in queue for three hours in bread in Bucharest and suddenly he wore a £ 28,000 watch. Perhaps this transition was too much for him.”

Raduccio later failed to attend the League Cup against Stockport; The friction they went to defeat.

“You can imagine my mood when a friend called me the next day and said that Raduccio had gone out shopping with his wife at the Harvey Nichols store in London the previous evening.

“I knew I wanted to get rid of him but it wasn’t easy.”
