Harry Redknapp is delighted with the Champions League draw.
Spurs will face Real Madrid in the quarter finals and travel to Spain for the first leg on Tuesday, April 5 before the home leg at White Hart Lane on Wednesday, April 13.
You want to play in these games,” said Redknapp.
“You want to manage in these games and the fans want to go and see these games. It couldn’t be better.”
“It’s a fantastic draw,” added Redknapp. “What a game to look forward to against one of the greatest clubs in world football. To play Real Madrid at this stage of the Champions League is fantastic for us and we’re all looking forward to it.
“It’s going to be a difficult game, obviously. They are a great side. But you have to look forward to games like this. These are the great days in your life and great days in Tottenham’s history. We’ll go there and give it a real go. It’s an exciting game. You couldn’t have a more exciting or tougher game.
“I’ve said all along that the two Spanish clubs were, for me, the favourites to win it. We’ve drawn Real Madrid who are pushing Barcelona all the way for the championship with big players and a fantastic manager. In my opinion, he’s one of the all-time greats.
“But we’ve got a chance against anyone. We feel we can play against anyone and give them a game. We’re looking forward to it.”
