Redknapp believes Tottenham should be title challengers

Former Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp believes the club should be challenging for the Premier League title in the coming season, with the Daily Telegraph claiming Redknapp is putting the pressure on his likely replacement, ex-Chelsea boss Andre Villas-Boas.

Redknapp was sacked by Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy in early June after speculation over his future regarding a proposed new contract that never arrived. Spurs do not yet have a replacement confirmed but Villas-Boas, the 34-year-old Portuguese who was appointed and then sacked by Chelsea last season is widely expected to be named to the post in the very near future.

Despite Spurs only finishing fourth in Redknapp’s last season in charge the former West Ham, Portsmouth and Southampton boss has insisted Tottenham should challenge the likes of Manchester United and Manchester City for the Premier League title in 2012-13. Tottenham were briefly in last season’s title race around the New Year period but fell away after January.

Redknapp said: “[Villas-Boas] has certainly got the players there to be a top four team every year and challenge for the championship. In the last four years we came from nowhere to be a top four team and the next step is to win the championship. I don’t think that is impossible for them.

So Harry why didn't you do it while you were there? Same players that you are talking about now! All you're saying is that AVB is a better coach than you. Even now you're opening your mouth and putting your foot in it. Still gives your press chums some more garbage to spout. Thanks for what you did for the team but "Bye and good riddance" never learned to put your brain in gear before exercising your jaw.
