Tottenham Hotspur went on one of their greatest ever European adventures last season in the Champions League as they made it all the way to the final.

Spurs managed to scrape their way out of a group with Barcelona, Inter Milan, and PSV, as well as defeating Borussia Dortmund, Man City, and Ajax in the knockout rounds.

This set up an all-English affair in Madrid as Spurs came up against Liverpool in the 2019 Champions League Final, eventually losing out two goals to nil.

Despite going on such a sensational run just six months ago, Pochettino was sacked by his club yesterday for a poor start to the 2019/20 season.

One man who knows all about taking Spurs on a wild European adventure before getting the sack is Harry Redknapp.

Before Poch, Redknapp led Tottenham to their most successful Champions League campaign ever, reaching the quarter-finals before being knocked out by Real Madrid.

Asked jokingly whether he would be up for the new managerial position in North London, Redknapp said this (Sky Sports): “Of course I would! But I’m a realist, I don’t live in cuckoo land, the chances are very slim.

“If Daniel rung me tomorrow I’d walk there, of course, I would, but it’s not going to happen.”

Unfortunately for Harry, Jose Mourinho has now been announced as the new Spurs manager.
