Corluka begged for Tottenham Hotspur exit
Vedran Corluka admits he begged to leave Tottenham Hotspur Football Club last month.
The Croatian international had lost his place in the first team picture at White Hart Lane, and he was worried about his involvement at Euro 2012 this summer.
Harry Redknapp was initially reluctant to let the defender join Bayer Leverkusen on loan, but after begging to be granted the move, the 25-year-old was granted his wish.
“When I told him that I had an option to move to Germany, Harry didn't want to even hear about that," Corluka told Vecernje List. "He said to me that he still needs me and that I'm very important to him.
"The day before leaving Spurs I called him, and even begged him to let me go, as that was the only option for me and my chances to be at Euro 2012. And, after that conversation, he softened up.”
