White Hart Lane boss uses Wenger’s row with Anfield manager at the Emirates as proof the Frenchman is under pressure.
Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp has branded Arsenal counterpart Arsene Wenger one of the biggest nutters in the Premier League.
The Frenchman arrived at Arsenal in 1996 from Grampus Eight in Japan amid calls he was a ‘professor’.
But Redknapp believes Wenger’s persona has changed as he come under more and more pressure to get results and win trophies.
The Spurs boss points to the spat between Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish and Wenger at the Emirates last Sunday of the Gunners’ chief losing the plot.
And Redknapp will hope to pile more pressure onto Wenger when they clash at White Hart Lane tonight.
“Suddenly when Arsenal started to lose he became one of the biggest nutters of all,” Redknapp said.
“He is jumping around more than anyone now. That’s how (the pressure) gets to you. We all do it. It’s wanting to win.’
“We need a win desperately. Arsenal have to win all of their games now and we will need most of our games to make the top four.”
