Tottenham boss Redknapp has nothing to prove to anybody

Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp was remaining very calm ahead of his side's first foray into the Champions League.

Spurs take on German club Werder Bremen in the opening group stage match tonight and Redknapp said he had nothing to prove to anybody ahead of the clash.

"I don't go through my life thinking I have got to prove anything to anybody," he said.

"I have proved I can do what I can do by getting them into fourth place from where we were. Whatever I do at Tottenham, my record has not been too shabby. I don't ever think I have got anything to prove.

"Maybe this is a different stage but it's not something I sit and think about. You want to do well but every competition you're in you want to do well. This is THE competition in club football and we want to do well. I want to put a team out that can do the job.

"In two years time I could be manager of Poole Town - who knows? You don't know in football. I don't look two years ahead."
