Tottenham manager proud of his team’s achievements
Tottenham looked anything like Premier League title contenders when losing 3-0 and 5-1 to the Manchester clubs in August, although they have since embarked on an excellent winning run which means a Premier League tilt is very realistic.

Spurs beat Everton 2-0 on Wednesday night to move level on points with Manchester United and Harry Redknapp is delighted and proud of his team’s achievements to date, with Saturday’s game against Wolves representing a chance for Tottenham to go level on points with Manchester City.
“City are where they are because of Sheikh Mansour and Chelsea thanks to Roman Abramovich,” he told The Sun.
“We have not done it that way and it makes me proud. You don’t have to go out and spend fortunes to find good players.
“Spurs are not third in the Premier League because someone has walked through the door at White Hart Lane and slapped a bundle of money on my desk.
“City can pay players £200,000 a week, it’s unbelievable. The people running Spurs have invested wisely.
“Some of the players we brought in raised eyebrows, like Younes Kaboul, but he’s made excellent progress. Hopefully it is coming together now.”
