Redknapp Predicts Champions League final: Tottenham vs Liverpool
Former Tottenham Coach, Harry Redknapp has predicted that his old club will be crowned champions of Europe in Madrid on Saturday.
Spurs clash with Premier League rivals in an all-English Champions League final.
Redknapp, while speaking with the UK Mirror, expressed his respect for the job Mauricio Pochettino has done in leading the current crop of players to the final, beating Premier League champions Manchester City along the way.
He said: “I’ve just got a feeling Tottenham’s name may be on the cup.
“They got out of the group phase somehow when they looked dead and buried, and it has gone from there.
“The Manchester City game… I just get a feeling it’s Tottenham’s year, which is hard on Liverpool because they deserve to win something this year. They have been amazing.”
Redknapp, whose son, Jamie, played for the Reds, added: “I also have a lot of feelings for Liverpool. They have done amazingly well and Jurgen Klopp has been brilliant for them.
“He is just full of energy and enthusiasm and looks like he is full of love for his team. He’s on the pitch at the end of every game. He’s a great character, larger than life, and a big personality.
“They’re a great team as well and next year I can see City, Liverpool and Tottenham creating a gap in the Premier League.”
