Harry Redknapp has told hotspur how he still regrets letting one big name slip through his grasp.
That player went on to earn a big international goalscoring reputation with Arsenal and England. But Harry could have had him at Bournemouth as a youngster after another trialist recommended him.
Harry recalls: "He said ‘my mate wants a trial as well.' I asked him if this player was better than him. He said ‘no' so I told him not to bother.
"That was a bit of a miss!"
Find out who Harry is talking about in the latest issue of our official magazine hotspur where our manager answers a whole host of interesting questions posed by readers.
