Ex-Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp has shared his thoughts on whether the club can break back into the top four this season.
Redknapp has stated that Spurs can ‘absolutely’ finish in the top four. The club have not qualified for the Champions League since the 2018/2019 season when Mauricio Pochettino was still in charge.
It is an accomplishment that Redknapp knows about from his time at the club. He finished in the top four twice during his four-year stint; an achievement that is still looked at with great fondness.
Under Mauricio Pochettino, Spurs cemented themselves as a regular Champions League side, qualifying for the competition four times in a row under the guidance of the Argentinian.
Since his departure, his successor Jose Mourinho failed to get the club back into the top four, only being able to bring the club into the Europa League by finishing sixth.
Nuno Espirito Santo has now been handed the task to get Spurs back into the competition, which is not an easy task.
It has been a fantastic start to the season, however, with Spurs winning both of their opening top flight fixtures without conceding a single goal.
Redknapp explained that Spurs can get themselves back into the top four, he told talkSPORT (26/8/21 – 7:40 am): “Absolutely (they can finish in the top four). Last year, I felt they could win the Premier League title. They were that strong.
“But they really under-achieved last year. Badly. But they have started well this year.”
The top four, in all honesty, seems like a million miles away – good start or not. The top teams have only got stronger.
We are at the start of a re-build, but who am I to question Harry Redknapp’s football knowledge.
