Pearce: I almost quit

Filed: Sunday, 13th August 2000
By: Matthew O'Greel

Stuart Pearce has revealed how he almost quit football before Harry Redknapp offered him a position at West Ham.

In an extract from his forthcoming book, entitled 'Psycho', Pearce reveals: "I was just days away from quitting as a player when I got the call saying Harry Redknapp wanted me for West Ham. Harry was brilliant then and has been ever since. He has lived up to everything I heard about him.

"Whereas Newcastle are a very professional club, but with much of its heart ripped out, West Ham are a bit of a throwback. The Happy Hammers are fun, with a tradition and an aura that is unique."

'Psycho' is released on August 31st, priced £17.99.
