Redknapp looks to lift Spurs

Published Add your comment

Harry Redknapp accepts you have to be as much as psychologist as a manager nowadays as Tottenham prepare to return to action in the Barclays Premier League against Stoke following the trauma of Fabrice Muamba's cardiac arrest.

The condition of the Bolton midfielder is now described as "comfortable" in intensive care, following his collapse at White Hart Lane on Saturday. Spurs' players and coaching staff alike were all moved by the experience, with both counselling offered by the club as well as the opportunity for heart tests at the training ground in Chigwell.

Redknapp, who revealed he had trouble sleeping in the wake of last weekend's events, said: "There's more to it now than there ever was. The lads are different now, probably. I think football management is about it being half a psychologist with them anyway, really."
