Redknapp full of pride over manner of Spurs victory

Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp is bursting with pride over the way his team is playing after victory over Werder Bremen.

Younes Kaboul followed up his derby winner by opening the scoring with a sixth-minute volley before Luka Modric doubled the hosts' advantage in first-half stoppage-time.

Peter Crouch then rounded off the scoring with 11 minutes to go to leave Redknapp beaming with pride at his side's performance, which came on the back of comprehensive European wins over Inter, Young Boys and FC Twente.

Redknapp said: "We have played some great football here. Overall it was a good night for us again. We scored four against Young Boys, four against Twente, scored three against Milan and three tonight. We have played some great games, created some great chances and played some attractive football here.

"We have to keep going. We have players here who can play in any team. Look at Gareth Bale, he could play in any team, Modric could and so could a few others I think. We have some outstanding players here."

Redknapp believes it is vital that Spurs beat FC Twente in their final game in two weeks' time in order to avoid the likes of Real Madrid, Barcelona and Bayern Munich in the next round.

"We want to win it [the group], you want that top spot if you can get it," he said.

"It looks as though most big teams will finish top of their group so it's important if you can finish top."
