Harry Redknapp has laughed off his son’s claim that the former Tottenham Hotspur manager could emulate Erik Lamela’s ‘Rabona’ goal.

The Argentina international has been one of the Premier League’s biggest talking points this week after netting a brilliant goal in a 5-1 victory over Asteras Tripolis in the Europa League on Thursday night.

The £30.75m signing broke the deadlock with a brilliant ‘Rabona’ goal, wrapping his left foot around his right to strike the ball from 20 yards at White Hart Lane.

When discussing the South American’s effort, former Spurs midfielder Jamie Redknapp suggested that his dad, Harry, was capable of similar skills during his playing career.

But Redknapp, who is currently the Queens Park Rangers manager, reckons his legs would deny him the chance to emulate Lamela, whilst earmarking David Dunn’s famous attempt as his favourite.

“I couldn’t get my leg over these days,” Redknapp is quoted as saying. “I can hardly walk, let alone do the whatever you call it.

“I definitely couldn’t manage that now. I’ve got a gammy knee. Everybody’s tried it.

“Who fell over that day? Was it Dunney [David Dunn]? That was the best one.

“It was a great goal [by Lamela], great bit of skill. Loved it.”
