Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp feels QPR midfielder Adel Taarabt has the ability of Zinedine Zidane.

Taarabt has ­flourished in west London and was the driving force behind QPR last season.

Redknapp said: "He's got the ability of Di Canio or someone like that. When he came here, they called him the next Zinedine Zidane.

"He isn't in the same league as Zidane yet because the Frenchman was a genius, but he could be up there ­because he has that ­ability."
