'An impossible dream'

Harry Redknapp has hailed Tottenham Hotspur’s performance in beating AC Milan last night, saying that what the club have achieved so far is ‘an impossible dream’.

Spurs drew 0-0 with Serie A table toppers Milan at White Hart Lane, which saw them win 1-0 on aggregate and go through to the quarter finals of the Champions League. It’s the first time in the club’s history that they’ve been this far, and they also get to gloat that they’ve gone further in the competition than deadly rivals Arsenal.

‘This is an impossible dream that we have achieved so far,’ said Redknapp. ‘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. We have beaten AC Milan over two legs with two clean sheets and won our group, which was the hardest of the lot.

‘It's a great night for Tottenham but we are not going to celebrate. The players are coming in for a warm down tomorrow (Thursday) and they are not going to have much time to celebrate.’
