Redknapp revels in mission impossible

7 years ago554 views



Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp is struggling to come to terms with his side's "impossible dream" after they held AC Milan to a goalless draw at White Hart Lane to reach the quarter-finals of the Champions League.

Spurs managed to keep out the Italian giants on a nervy evening in north London to reach the last eight having taken a 1-0 lead from the first leg thanks to Peter Crouch's strike.

Redknapp's team have enjoyed a remarkable debut season in the competition having beaten reigning champions Inter Milan in the group stages before seeing off the seven-time European champions over two hard-fought legs.

Redknapp now faces the mouth-watering prospect of his side drawing a huge showdown with the likes of Real Madrid or Barcelona in the next stage next month.

"This is an impossible dream that we have achieved so far," Harry Redknapp said. "Two years ago if you would have said that we would have made it to the quarter-finals of the Champions League, I would have thought you were crazy.

"It's our first year in the club's history we have ever made Champions League football so that was a fantastic achievement to have won our group and to do what we have done against AC Milan."
