Harry Redknapp has had his say on who he thinks will win the Champions League final between Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur.
Both sides meet in the all-English affair at the Wanda Metropolitano Stadium in Madrid for the honour of being called the champions of Europe.
Up until this season, Redknapp held the record of being the only manager to take Spurs to the quarter final stage of the competition since it’s rebranding to the Champions League before losing to Real Madrid in 2011.
The former Spurs boss believes that it will be Mauricio Pochettino’s side who come out on top.
After three group stage matches, Spurs only had one point to their name and battled back to progress through the group stage to also defeat Borussia Dortmund, Manchester City and Ajax in the knockout stages.
Liverpool will be looking to go one better than last year when they were defeated by Gareth Bale’s Madrid in the final.
Redknapp wrote in The Sunday People (print edition, page 26, Sunday, May 26, 2019): “I’ve just got a feeling Tottenham’s name may be on the cup. They got out of the group phase somehow when they looked dead and buried, and it has gone from there.
“The Manchester City game… I just get a feeling it’s Tottenham’s year, which is hard on Liverpool because they deserve to win something this year. They have been amazing.”
