Having successfully rebuffed Chelsea's "ridiculous" £22 million offer for Luka Modric and assured everyone that he had absolutely no intention of ever selling the midfielder, Harry Redknapp and his family likely celebrated the way they celebrate most triumphs: by playing Wii. Mario Kart, Super Smash Brothers, Wii Sports -- judging by the above ad the Redknapps love it all and play it constantly. In fact, Harry probably just nailed a wicked 7-10 split in Wii bowling when he was informed of Modric's announcement.
From the Independent:
Modric said: "I want to leave Tottenham as friends. I have enjoyed my time there, but now it is right for me to look at another club. I have an arrangement with the chairman. When I signed my new contract, he said that, if another club came to sign me, they would consider the offer.
"Chelsea are a big club with an ambitious owner. They have great players and they have ambitions to fight for the title and win the Champions League. I want to stay in London. I am very happy here and so are my family. I like the city."
Upon hearing that, the Wii controller probably dropped from Harry's hands as he slipped into a state of shock as the sting of this betrayal set in. That Mario Kart race against Jamie would have to wait...
