Redknapp: Schillo Less Than Modric, Bale

Harry Redknapp has suggested that former Bafana Bafana skipper Steven Pienaar is a lesser player than Luka Modric and Gareth Bale.

Redknapp signed Schillo for Tottenham Hotspur when he was still manager of the London club, but hardly gave the attacking midfielder a chance to prove his mettle at White Hart Lane.

IThe move was a miserable miscalculation by Pienaar, who ultimately returned to Everton, where he is loved and appreciated, and where he should never have left in the first place.

Pienaar had the last laugh at the weekend however, when he helped Everton to a win over Redknapp’s current club QPR, who are destined for a sharp crash into the Championship at the end of the season.

After the match, Redknapp was asked why Schillo could never get a look in under him at Spurs, and he said better players were an obstacle in the South African’s path.

“Steven couldn’t get in the team because of Luca Modric and Gareth Bale – they’re not bad players.

“He plays in off the left as do Bale and Modric, and he played in AC Milan that night when we won 1-0 away, but he was struggling to get games.”
