Becks sets sight on stint with Spurs for World Cup gloryApril 22nd, 2009 - 4:31 pm ICT by ANI
London, Apr. 22 (ANI): Believe it or not Harry Redknapp, the White Hart Lane boss, is resurrecting David Beckham’s career from the dead.
That’s the word from inside the game, which suggests that Becks could join Tottenham ahead of next year’s World Cup finals.
Beckham needs to find a place to play serious football when the MLS season ends in October and his signing is part of a 40 million pound push by Spurs to realise their Champions League dream.
Redknapp is aware of the deal, and if there’s one boss in the Premier League who can get the best from Becks, it’s Harry.
He thrives on the challenge of taking senior players who may have taken a wrong turn and making them great again.
Witness Paolo Di Canio at West Ham, Sol Campbell at Portsmouth.
What Redknapp offers Becks is an environment where he can thrive and a stage on which Fabio Capello can’t ignore him.
Beckham and Spurs is the perfect marriage. The former England captain wanted to be Tottenham legend Glenn Hoddle when he was a kid.
As a man, the North London club offers him the right place at the right time to realise his dream of playing in a fourth World Cup finals.
And who better to play club football under? If Sir Bobby Robson is England’s greatest living manager, then Redknapp is the best still working. (ANI)
