Redknapp not worried about Spurs youngsters: I won't be here in four years

Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp admits he's not overly-concerned about the youngsters at the club.

He said: "We just took two kids from Sheffield United and we want young players but really, it's all about your first team. You need experience and people who are going to win football matches.

"It's no good saying 'we're going to be a good team in four years', because I probably won't be here. That's not how the game works, you need a team.

"We're looking for young talent and young players who will play here for years to come. But that can mean bringing in an experienced player to pull all of them together.

"There's no problem with the chairman [Daniel Levy] on that front. He brought me here as the manager and he knows I've got a bit of an idea what I'm doing so he backs me."
