Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp has spoken of his pride at building a title-chasing team without matching Manchester City's spending.

Spurs have flourished under Redknapp's leadership and are now level with Manchester United and three behind table-topping City after 20 matches. Their side has been put together for a fraction of the money lavished on Roberto Mancini's squad by the club's mega-rich owners - a fact clearly not lost on Redknapp.

"City are where they are because of Sheikh Mansour and Chelsea thanks to Roman Abramovich," he told The Sun. "We have not done it that way and it makes me proud. You don't have to go out and spend fortunes to find good players."
