Harry Redknapp’s press conference before the Blackpool game was more interesting than usual, with comments that will raise more than a few eyebrows with Spurs fans.
On the subject of our league campaign, Harry said it would be a ‘miracle’ if Spurs finished above Chelsea and Manchester City in the top four at the end of the season.
“It would be a miracle if we did qualify,” Harry said. “I think people get carried away thinking Tottenham should be in the Champions League. Why should we be in the Champions League?
“We’d never been in the Champions League before, suddenly we do it and it’s ‘oh well we should do it again’.
“Look at Man City and Chelsea’s wage bill. Have a look at the money they pay out. Why should we finish above them?”
Redknapp went on to talk about David Beckham and suggested that he hadn’t looked into the possibility of bringing him back to the club in November.
Sounds like Harry was deflecting quite a few issues yesterday, but does he really believe a top four finish would be a miracle, or is he trying to take pressure off the team?
