Redknapp happy to be back

Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp has admitted that he is happy to return to action after watching his team beat Aston Villa 2-0 on Monday night.

A first-half Emmanuel Adebayor brace gave the home side three points at White Hart Lane, and lifted the North London outfit up to third place in the Premier League standings.

Spurs dominated the game, and Redknapp was pleased with his team’s performance.

“I enjoyed the way we played tonight, I think the fans enjoyed it as well – they’ve seen lots of great teams over the years and they’re enjoying the way this team’s playing,” he told Sky Sports.

“It’s great to be back tonight – I wouldn’t want to watch it at home again, that was nerve-wracking.”

Although there would some impressive attacking displays by the Tottenham contingent, Redknapp singled out centre back Younes Kaboul for a solid performance.

“I thought defensively we were very strong as well, Kaboul was looking the player I thought he could be tonight,” he admitted.

The win makes it eight victories from nine games for Spurs, but Redknapp knows that his team will face a battle to qualify for the Champions League this term.

“It’s going to be so close. I think we’ll be up there this year to finish as high as we can, so who knows what we can achieve?

“If we can make the top four again I’ll be delighted. Anything above that would be a bonus, but getting in the top four is going to be difficult,” he concluded.
