He had no knowledge at all that his call to his chairman was recorded They made me out to be the villain of the piece with a pack of lies, a day after making me sign a letter promising I would say nothing about the club or the transfer. It turned the Spurs fans against me – and I want to know exactly what happened and I left.”
