Tottenham defender Kyle Walker has said that the club should be retaining the services of manager Harry Redknapp at all costs in order to challenge for the Champions League places once again next season.
Tottenham came ever so close to securing a spot in the Champions League next season, but the fact that Chelsea managed to win the competition will now put them into the Europa league. It has been always viewed as an unnecessary competition by many clubs due to the large number of games and lack of huge revenue from them. However, Kyle Walker says that he looks forward to playing in Europe next season with Tottenham.
Harry Redknapp has been a brilliant manager at Tottenham since his arrival four years ago. Even though there have been speculation linking him with a move to Chelsea and Liverpool recently, he has always said that he remains fully committed to Tottenham. A number of high profile players like Luka Modric and Gareth Bale are being linked with a move to clubs like Real Madrid, Barcelona, and Chelsea. Yet, Kyle Walker believes that the manager is far more important than the players because he has helped them attain this superior position.
“I definitely hope he stays at White Hart Lane. Who wouldn’t want him to stay at the football club when you look at the results he gets for us. I think anyone would want him around. I don’t think there’s a better manager. I try not to get distracted by speculation but, hopefully, he is around and I will be working with him next season. He ended the season as the highest-placed English manager in the League and he attracts players to the club as well,” said Kyle Walker. Many, though, will be pointing their fingers at Harry Redknapp for the late-season collapse.
