We can score here

Harry Redknapp has said that his Tottenham Hotspur side won’t give up their free-wheeling style in order to stop Milan from playing tonight, promising that his side will go onto the pitch at the San Siro looking for goals, rather than to stop them going in at the other end.

Spurs have alreadymade quite an impression on the Champions League so far this season, with Gareth Bale in particular standing out. The Welshman isn’t available tonight, but that isn’t going to stop them from having a go at Milan.

‘We can score here,’ Redknapp said. ‘I don't want to concede bags of goals, for sure. We can't afford the same mistakes (as against Inter). We can't start like that again. But as far as shutting up shop goes, it's a non-starter because we don't have the players here.

‘Attacking football is what got us here in the first place. We have had a go all through this competition so we will have a right go again at San Siro. We can't come out and be completely gung-ho. But what I'm saying is that I do have a problem setting a team up to defend. Rafael van der Vaart plays the way he plays. Niko Kranjcar and (Aaron) Lennon – we haven't got defensive players to play with five across midfield and soak it up.’
