Ex-Spurs boss Redknapp tells Jose: Target League Cup

Former Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp has urged Jose Mourinho not to turn up his nose at the League Cup.

Redknapp wrote for The Sun: "Tottenham's boss should target the EFL Cup. Yes, it is considered second rate by the elite clubs but it can be a springboard to more glory.

"The top teams rest their best players and so it could be an easy get — and the fans would love it.

"Players will compete for anything. It's how you drive them in training every week. They want to know there is something at the end for them in return.

"Of course, Tottenham could win the FA Cup, too, as they have a great squad.

"Go back to last summer and on paper you'd have taken theirs over Chelsea's.

"I say don't be shy about going for the EFL Cup, Jose. It could be the key to unlocking the door."
