Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp would be only the FIFTH Englishman to lead his team into the Champions League if he is successful this season.

Spurs cannot afford defeat at Manchester City tonight to hold onto their top four dream.

While Redknapp is forced to wait, Steve McClaren has Champions League football to look forward to after guiding FC Twente to an improbable Dutch title triumph.

The other three English managers to work in Europe's elite competition were Ray Harford (Blackburn Rovers), Howard Wilkinson (Leeds United) and Sir Bobby Robson (Porto and Newcastle United).
