Harry Redknapp says Tottenham fans should be making the most of their signing of ex-Arsenal captain William Gallas.
Redknapp insisted the 33-year-old has been welcomed with open arms by the Tottenham squad despite having played for both Arsenal and Chelsea and believes the signing represents a notable coup.
Gallas will not be available until after the international break as he continues to rebuild his fitness and Redknapp, who is preparing his side to face Young Boys in tomorrow night's Champions League play-off second-leg clash at White Hart Lane, said: "I don't think the players are concerned about William's Arsenal connection.
"This time last year, Patrick Vieira wanted to come to Tottenham. Patrick was a legend at Arsenal but I spoke to him and he was very keen to come and play for Tottenham.
"They are professional footballers. William's career took him to Chelsea and Arsenal but he is here and part of us now. He belongs to Tottenham. I think it shows you the courage these boys have got.
"They could take the easy way out and go and play abroad somewhere but he is willing to take the flak. He knows he is going to get some flak from the Arsenal fans but his signing is one-up for us. Tottenham fans should be thinking, 'Hang on, we have got one over on them here'.
"He is willing to come to Tottenham and play. He is a good player and a great asset to us. On a free transfer, he is a great bit of business."
