Harry Redknapp has insisted that he has spoken to Spurs chairman Daniel Levy about adding some quality to the squad in the summer.
The Spurs boss has stressed the importance of adding to the squad if we are to be a regular fixture in the Champions League.
“I’ve said many times to the chairman, it’s not always about the best players, it’s about getting characters in your football club,” said Redknapp.
“Chelsea have had it over the years, whether it’s John Terry or Frank [Lampard], and Man United have had it with [Ryan] Giggs, Ferdinand and [Nemanja] Vidic.
“William [Gallas] has come in and given us experience and we’ve got Michael [Dawson] at the back but in the long term I still feel that you need to find another one or two if you’re going to keep progressing, that type of real character, who has opinions and that will to win around the dressing room – a few leaders. You can’t have too many at your club. That’s why I tried to take Phil Neville from Everton in January.”
Redknapp is already planning for next season and he is keen to add to his squad in this summer’s transfer window.
“You’ve got to add to the squad,” continued Redknapp. “The chairman knows … if we can’t move on, then you have to accept trying to get into the Europa League every year and trying to finish sixth or seventh. But if you want to try to make the Champions League, you have to keep improving.”
