Harry Redknapp admits January could be a “disaster” month for Tottenham.
Spurs will lose Sebastien Bassong and Benoit Assou-Ekotto to the African Nations Cup next month which will only hurt Redknapp’s defensive problems with Ledley King and Jonathan Woodgate sidelined through injury.
“It’s a disaster really, a disaster for us losing a couple of players,” Redknapp said.
“When you sign them I guess you know you’re going to lose them every couple of years playing in those games. It’s a chance you take.
“We’ll be OK at left-back. Gareth Bale’s training great and looking OK, doing well. But we’ve got a problem obviously at centre-half if one of the other two boys don’t get fit – if Ledley or Woody don’t get fit. That is a problem.”
“I’ve got four centre-halves and if one of the other two comes back we’ll be OK,” Redknapp said.
“(Vedran) Corluka can play there, Tom (Huddlestone) can play there as well.”
