Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp says Roman Pavlyuchenko proved his worth to the club after his double helped defeat Birmingham City.

The Russian long-range strikes helped relegate The Blues and confirm Spurs' Europa League spot in a season in which they dazzled in the Champions League.

And Redknapp says the forward has got all the attributes.


“Pav took his goals well and he's always likely to do that, he's a great striker of the ball. He's got so much ability.

“You watch him in training every day, his movement, his finishing, he's top-drawer. He's a good lad, comes in and works hard and he's so laid back.

“He can play, he's a good player. He's got dynamite in his boots, like his goals, he can do that - 25 yards and bang. He's got that ability. He's a clever mover as well.”
