Redknapp hopes Tottenham Champions League achievement recognised

Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp hopes people recognise how far they have come under his charge.

Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp hopes people recognise how far they have come under his charge.

Redknapp is confident his existing squad is more than capable of making their debut season in the Champions League one to remember.

That is despite a Group A draw which could hardly be tougher, with holders Inter Milan, Werder Bremen and FC Twente lying it wait.

"We've got a chance - a good chance - of qualifying," said Redknapp, who has transformed Spurs from relegation fodder to European heavyweights less than two years since taking charge.

Referring to a television commercial for a well-known national newspaper, he added to roars of laugher: "Watch the advert with the little ginger kid in the mornings.

"That tells you everything: 'Whoever thought Tottenham would be finishing fourth?'.

"Watch it; it's on every day; gives you a good wake-up call.

"I hope people who get carried away with what Tottenham are doing look at that and understand just how well we've done."
