Tottenham will win EPL within four years: Redknapp
London, Feb 18 (IANS) Former Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp has predicted the that the club will win the English Premier League (EPL) within the next four years.
“I have absolutely loved the way they have played — their football, the pace of the full-backs.
“Tottenham will go on and win the Premier League in the next three or four years,” Redknapp told BBC Radio 5.
Redknapp took Tottenham to the quarter-finals of the Champions League in 2011, during his four-year tenure at the club.
“They’ve not been up there with the big spenders. Now with the new stadium the crowds are going to nearly double.
“The man who owns the club, Joe Lewis, is up there with the richest men in the world. So there’s certainly no shortage of money,” he said.
“Maybe they do run out of steam, maybe he (Pochettino) hasn’t been able to rotate and could do with another three or four top players to give him the strength in depth.
“If you said to me ‘go and manage any team you want’, I would take Tottenham’s best XI,” he added.
Tottenham are curently third in the EPL table with 50 points, 10 behind leaders Chelsea. But they lost to Liverpool last Saturday and at Gent in the first leg of their Europa League last-32 tie on Thursday.
“They have been fantastic under (Mauricio) Pochettino. I have absolutely loved the way they have played – their football, the pace of the full-backs,” Redknapp said.
“Tottenham will go on and win the Premier League in the next three or four years.”
