Redknapp named as top boss

Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp has been named Premier League Manager of the Year after guiding his side to a top-four finish this season.

The Londoners clinched a Champions League qualification place with a 1-0 success at close rivals Manchester City on Wednesday evening and the former Bournemouth, West Ham United, Southampton and Portsmouth boss has been rewarded for their efforts.

Spurs also got through to the FA Cup semi-finals before surprisingly falling to the hands of his former club, Portsmouth.

Other notable achievements include a 9-1 mauling of Wigan Athletic last November and successes at their White Hart Lane home over Liverpool, Arsenal and Chelsea.

However, Redknapp, although delighted, believes his right-hand men and players deserve as much credit.

Speaking to the club's official website, he said:"I'm delighted to receive the award, but it's a team effort with Kevin (Bond), Joe (Jordan), Clive (Allen), Tony (Parks), Tim (Sherwood), Les (Ferdinand) and all the coaching and fitness staff.

"Really, I'm just part of the team. It's all down to the players and what they've achieved. It's down to them really and a real honour to receive it."
