Harry Redknapp: I could have won league title with Tottenham
Harry Redknapp reckons his Tottenham side were short a striker
Harry Redknapp believes he could have won the Premier League title with Tottenham Hotspur.
The 67-year-old was named as Spurs manager in 2008 as the north London side languished at the bottom of the table following a winless start to the season.
If we had invested more at the right time, we could have done it
Just over 18 months later, Redknapp guided Tottenham into the Champions League for the first time in the club’s history.
The popular manager’s White Hart Lane reign came to an end in May 2012, with Spurs appointing Andre Villas-Boas as his replacement.
However, Redknapp, who is currently in charge of Queens Park Rangers, reckons Spurs could have won the league if more money had been invested in the squad.
“Oh yes. Well I would certainly be very close, without a doubt. But never mind those clubs, I think I could have actually won the league at Tottenham,” Redknapp told Four Four Two.
“If we had invested more at the right time, we could have done it. We were probably short of a striker.
Redknapp continued: “Then all those years ago at West Ham if we had kept that batch of young players then we might have got into the Champions League places.
If we could have kept hold of Ferdinand, Lampard, Cole, Johnson, Carrick and Defoe…”
