Harry Redknapp played a vital part in the resurgence of Tottenham Hotspur having guided us to our first ever campaign in the Champions League.

After enduring the likes of Tim Sherwood and Andre Villas-Boas, Mauricio Pochettino arrived from Southampton and helped take the club to new heights.

Last season’s Champions League campaign will certainly live long in the memory of many Spurs fans, especially the eventful night in Amsterdam.

This season, Spurs run the risk of not adding to those memories after suffering an awful start to the season.

Humiliation in cup competitions at the other ends of the footballing spectrum causing humiliation in the form of Bayern Munich and Colchester United.

Despite the terrible season to date, Harry Redknapp is not expecting Daniel Levy to sack Mauricio Pochettino.

Whilst admitting the upcoming top flight match against West Ham United is a vital fixture, he believes a squad with the quality the North London side possess should be ending their eleven year wait for silverware.

He told Sky Sports: “West Ham will be a difficult game, but I can’t see his job being on the line,”

“I’m a big fan of Pochettino – he’s a great manager and personality, he knows the game.

“But with that squad he’s got to win something, they have to get some silver on the sideboard somewhere.

“They won’t win the league and I don’t think they are good enough to win the Champions League [this season].

“They’re out the League Cup so will have to look to win the FA Cup, which is a possibility as they are good side.”
