Tottenham put Young Boys in their place

7 years ago207 views



Harry Redknapp toasted Tottenham's Champions League qualification with a cup of tea and a bacon sandwich - before immediately turning his attention to beating Wigan on Saturday.

Peter Crouch fired a hat-trick and Jermain Defoe - with more than a hint of handball - was also on target as Spurs thrashed Young Boys 4-0 in their play-off second leg at White Hart Lane to secure a place in the draw for the lucrative group stages for the first time since playing in the 1961/62 European Cup.

Spurs fans may have left White Hart Lane dreaming of trips to Madrid, Barcelona and Milan, but the ever pragmatic Redknapp, kept his feet firmly on the floor.

"This is a club with European tradition, under the great Bill Nicholson, I would not be in the same class as him, and never will be, but it is great for the club to be in this position now," Redknapp said.

"I will probably just go home, have a bacon sandwich and a cup of tea, that is all I want.

"We have got Wigan here on Saturday and it is important we continue to pick up points in the Premier League."
