Redknapp targets Champions League group stages
Spurs boss Harry Redknapp is relishing the prospect of guiding his side to qualification for the Champions League group stages.
The 63-year-old’s Tottenham squad travel to Switzerland for the first leg of their qualifier against Young Boys next Tuesday following their fourth-place Premier League finish last season.
And Redknapp says the two-leg encounter will be a “massive” occasion as he looks to secure qualification for the Champions League group stages for the first time in his managerial career.
“It’s massive and I am really excited about it,” Rednkapp told the League Managers Association. “We all sat around the TV at the training ground and waited eagerly for the draw to see who we would be playing.
“It would be great to make the group stages of the competition and if we could do that it would be something to really look forward to.
“However, the Premier League is always massive for us so hopefully we will be fighting on both fronts throughout this season.”
