Jamie Redknapp has spoken out about how his father Harry Redknapp has struggled to talk about the horrific 1990 car crash he was involved in.

The accident took place in Italy after the country’s team played Ireland in a match when the minivan Harry was traveling in collided with a car, killing three young Italians and his West Ham teammate Brian Tiler who was sitting in Harry’s usual seat on the bus.

While the 73-year-old has found it difficult to talk about the harrowing accident with his son, he opened up to talk about it for Jamie’s new book Me, Family and the Making of a Footballer.
