Harry Redknapp criticised quality of the Wembley pitch and Tottenham’s failure to finish their chances after their FA Cup semi-final defeat to Portsmouth.
There’s no avoiding the fact that Tottenham were dismal and could have potentially blown their chance of European football next season – based on that performance.
“It’s disappointing obviously, a massive disappointment,” Redknapp told Sky Sports. “We had our chances, but couldn’t take one.
“We had enough opportunities, but either hit the keeper or missed them and you’ve got to stick them away when they come.
“Credit to Portsmouth. They kept going and were dangerous on the counter attack. They had pace up front.
“Unfortunately a costly slip by Dawson on a terrible pitch, which is a disgrace for anybody to play on, but that’s not an excuse for getting beat.
“Avram (Grant) did a good job. He set them up well and I wish them every success in the final.”
