Billy Bonds on Harry Redknapp: exclusive

By: Staff Writer

Coming on KUMB.com next week: a world exclusive as Billy Bonds talks about his relationship with Harry Redknapp for the first time.

It's nearly 20 years since Hammers legend Bonds last spoke with his former best friend and assistant manager, following his acrimonious departure from Upton Park in August 1994.

Ever since Bonds, who previously captained United to FA Cup success in 1975 and 1980 has refused to discuss his sudden exit - or his relationship with Redknapp.

Last week, Redknapp's new autobiography - in which he accused Bonds of running "a shambles" at West Ham and of being "a man out of time" - was serialised by the Daily Mail.

And now the man affectionately known as 'Bonzo' by the claret and blue faithful has finally decided to end his two decade-long silence in order to set the record straight, in an exclusive interview for the KUMB Podcast.

As well as his thoughts on Redknapp's new book, you'll find out what Bill really thinks about 1991 FA Cup semi-final referee Keith Hackett, West Ham's move to the Olympic Stadium and his view on Sam Allardyce and the current squad.

In the meantime, you may listen to the first part of our exclusive interview with Billy Bonds MBE in this week's episode of the KUMB Podcast.
