Redknapp took Tottenham from battling against relegation to a memorable first campaign in the Champion League during his almost four years in charge.

His son, Jamie, who also turned out for Tottenham during his playing career admitted that his father regrets being unable to have brought Gary Cahill to White Hart Lane.

Cahill was on Tottenham’s radar during his time at Bolton Wanderers after impressing against Redknapp’s side during the 2010-11 Premier League campaign.

The central defender was instead snapped up by London rivals Chelsea in a £7million transfer in January 2012 following a delay over agreeing personal terms (BBC).

in an interview between Jamie Redknapp and Cahill for the Daily Mail, Jamie revealed his father’s regret to the England international who went on to have a successful career at Stamford Bridge having made 290 appearances in all competitions (transfermarkt) before joining Crystal Palace last summer.

He added: “I know for a fact one of my dad’s big regrets is missing out on you.”
