Harry Redknapp believes that his believes that his Tottenham players can learn from the passion which Gary Neville displayed at Old Trafford last weekend.
The Manchester United veteran was an unused substitute in their 4-3 win against Manchester City and celebrated the dramatic late winner by running down the touchline in Jose Mourinho fashion.
“You look at Gary Neville, a man who has won everything there is to win – championship after championship after championship,” Redknapp said.
“The excitement he showed at his team winning and he was only a sub.
“He wasn’t sitting on the bench with his arms folded. He was jumping higher than Fergie (Sir Alex Ferguson) when they scored and that’s why they are where they are. That is why they succeed.”
“I remember losing at Bolton last season, getting beaten and looking at the bench,” Redknapp added.
“I think two of them were asleep with hats pulled down and blankets over them.
“I said ‘I’m sorry to drag you up here, I know it’s cold and you could be home with the missus with a cup of tea. It’s hard for 30 grand a week to watch a game’.”
