Tottenham keeper Gomes planning to anger Redknapp - all for a good cause!

Tottenham goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes is ready to wind-up manager Harry Redknapp - all for a good cause.

"Maybe I'm going to start arriving late for training," Gomes laughed with the Sunday Times. "I've never been fined in any club that I've played for. But perhaps for a cause like this I'm going to start misbehaving."

The cause is SOS Children, an international charity that provides families for orphans, and it benefits every time a Tottenham player contravenes club rules.

"SOS is a marvellous project," says Gomes. "Every player adopts a child and I've adopted a six-year-old in China. I try to help him as much as I can. Some people say, 'You are helping one, what about the many others who are not happy?' But if you think this way, nothing will ever be done."
