Redknapp regrets ending Tottenham Suarez interest

Ahead of Sunday’s clash with Liverpool, Spurs manager Harry Redknapp has revealed that the club pulled out of a move for now Reds striker Luis Suarez, and admitted it’s a decision he now regrets.

Tottenham were heavily linked with the Uruguayan striker when it became clear that he would be leaving Ajax last season, but the player eventually completed a £22m deal with Liverpool.

Redknapp told ESPN: “We looked at Suarez. That was a player who we probably should have took, looking back on it now. The fee was £30-odd million and that’s a lot of money. We thought he played a bit like Van der Vaart as well.

“We were looking for a target man but I have seen him play up on his own and he can do that. He can play anywhere. He can do anything. He is a top-class, fantastic player… We thought about signing him but we weren’t in to spending £35m on one player.”
