Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy says Harry Redknapp deserves great credit for their Champions League participation. Levy has spent upwards of £300m backing his managers in the transfer market since he took over as chairman from Alan Sugar in 2001.
Levy said: "We have spent a lot of money but in relative terms it's not a lot compared to certain other clubs. A lot of credit goes to the manager and the people around him so you have to be a bit careful when you say it's all about money.
"Harry has done a great job but the success of a club can never be down to one individual whether it be a player, director, manager or money.
"It's a combination of factors that all come together and, as ever, there will always be an element of luck.
"You get the right decision in a particular game and, let's be honest, look how close it was at the end of the season. But Harry has done a great job."
