Tottenham’s Redknapp looking to top Champions League group
Spurs take on German club Werder Bremen in their opener at the Weserstadion tonight and also meet title holders Inter Milan and Dutch champions FC Twente in the initial phase and Redknapp admits they hold no fears of their rivals.
“Inter are favourites but there’s no guarantee they’ll finish top. We want to finish top if we can,” he said.
“The players have got to prove it. It’s what they do when they get on that pitch. That’s what it’s all about.
“Before we played in Berne (against Young Boys) I told the players they had to seize the opportunity in case it doesn’t come again, and you saw what happened.
“You can give them all the messages you want, it’s what they do when they go out there. We’ve got to go out and perform. All the messages I give them are great and I can set them up. But they’ve got to go out there and do it.”
