All good things must come to an end, even if the charming press conferences, the coy answers and the even more coy denials said otherwise.
After a couple of weeks of speculation, it has been all but confirmed that Harry Redknapp will be leaving Tottenham this week. Redknapp's contract situation couldn't be worked out to either the club or the manager's liking.
In his four years at Tottenham, Redknapp took a club lagging at the foot of the Premier League table to the quarterfinals of the Champions League to limbo after finishing fourth, only to be dropped from the Champions League due to Chelsea's win in the final.
While there have certainly been some trying moments during his tenure, Redknapp has been one of the most successful coaches Spurs have had in the last 30 years, with many accomplishments and moments of glory to back the stats up.
