Former West Ham defender and manager Billy Bonds has finally spoken out on his feud with Harry Redknapp, reports The Independent.
The pair fell out when Bonds was sacked at Upton Park in 1994 and was replaced by his assistant manager, Redknapp, and the QPR boss criticised the way the club was being run at the time in his autobiography.
However, Bonds claims his old No. 2 has been "very liberal with the truth" as he spoke for the first time about Redknapp:
For him to come out with what he said was disrespectful to the players and one or two of the staff who were over there.
I think he’s been very liberal with the truth, but that’s much as I expected.
I haven’t spoken to him for 20 years; I find it quite pathetic that he comes out with stuff [like that] really, to be quite honest with you.
