Harry Redknapp has lavished praise on returning goalkeeper Carlo Cudicini, after the Italian signed a new one year deal with Tottenham.

Cudicini suffered a nasty motor accident last year, in which he suffered two broken wrists and a fractured pelvis.

He is back in training now and will be working throughout the summer with goalkeeping coach Tony Parks in a bid to regain fitness.

And Redknapp praised the 36-year-old’s attitude towards his career, when most might have called time on it.

“It is great to see Carlo out on the training pitch again after everything he has been through. He is coming on fantastic and training well.

“If anyone was going to come back from something like this, it would be him.

“He is dedicated, a top professional through and through, and has been there every Saturday to support the side.

“He has been brought up in the game – his father was a great goalkeeper at AC Milan and Carlo is exactly the same, a top-class person and professional.”
