Tottenham boss Redknapp lauds Swansea counterpart Rodgers

Tottenham meet Brendan Rodgers Swansea team on Sunday with a ringing endorsement from Spurs boss Harry Redknapp over what the South Wales outfit have achieved in their first season in the top flight. The Swans are now just one point short of the traditional safety mark of 40 points with eight matches of the Premier League season remaining.

"He's someone who has a fantastic future," Redknapp said.

"I don't know what his long-term plans are but certainly the job he has done at Swansea has just been amazing.

"I remember speaking to Frank Lampard a few years ago when he was at Chelsea and he was telling me how good he was then.

"I just think it has been fantastic that a team can come up and play the way they have played, pass the ball as they do."

The Swans have beaten Arsenal and Manchester City this season and Redknapp admits his team must be at their best if they are to gain another win that will take them one step closer to Champions League football this weekend.

"It's so difficult to play them. They are fearless," Redknapp said.

"They have caused everyone problems this year, from Manchester United, to Manchester City, ourselves, Arsenal, Chelsea.

"They don't care who they play against, they have given them big, big problems."
