Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp has revealed he's spoken with Russia coach Guus Hiddink about striker Roman Pavlyuchenko.

Ahead of their Carling Cup tie with Everton, Redknapp has urged Pavlyuchenko to grab his chance to shine and get himself back in favour.

"Guus Hiddink was here on Friday and we spoke about Pav, how he is, how you get him going," Redknapp said.

"He had the same opinion as me, really. He said something he shouts at him, sometimes he's nice to him, sometimes he doesn't speak to him at all, sometimes he talks to him. And he's tried all those things.

"He's a very laid back guy, Pav, but he's got good ability. We both feel he's technically such a good player. But he just needs to be a bit more aggressive."

Redknapp added: "I'm looking for a big performance from him. A performance that says 'you can't leave me out the team now'."
