Harry Redknapp has praised the impact of Wilson Palacios in the Tottenham team, singling him out as one of the main causes of the club’s change from relegation strugglers to Champions League qualification contenders.
Redknapp took over with the club languishing at the bottom of the table and told Hotspur Magazine that the signing of Palacios has been key to the change in Spurs’ fortunes.
“One or two players have made a difference here. Wilson Palacios has made a massive impact on this club. He gets on with it, he’s strong, aggressive and a big player for us.
“Sebastian Bassong has come in alongside Ledley King, Michael Dawson, Jonathan Woodgate. Robbie Keane’s back and he’s a buzzy character around the place.
“We’ve brought a few players in and it has changed the mood. They see the likes of Wilson come in who work and close down and it rubs off on other people. You need players like that.”
