Harry Rednappp looks to the skies

Harry Redknapp has said that his Tottenham Hotpsur team need to concentrate on being in the Champions League next season, after their European adventure came to an end at White Hart lane last night.

Spurs lost 1-0 to Real Madrid thanks to a Cristiano Ronaldo goal and a typical Gomes cock-up, losing their quarter-final 5-0 on aggregate, and now have the challenge of finishing the season in the top four places. They are currently in fifth, four points behind Manchester City with a game in hand, and a match against the Blues coming up, so it’s all in their hands.

‘It's very difficult to retain that top-four spot,' he said. 'But that's something we've got to aim to do at Tottenham. We've got to be up there every year. We should be. If we can make the top four again, it would be a great achievement.

‘It will be even harder this year than it was last year because of the improvement Man City have made. I still think we've got a big chance. We've got tough games. We've got Arsenal here next week, then we've got Chelsea, we've got to go to Man City.

‘But they're great games to look forward to and it's good to be in there playing these games and having something to play for still. It's better than sitting 12th in the league. It's got the makings of a good end of season again.’
