Tottenham Hotspur have been at their best ever since Harry Redknapp became manager - an achievement that the Spurs boss is proud to be associated with.

"Tottenham have only finished in the top four twice since the Premier League started and I've been lucky enough to be manager both times," he said. "I'm very proud of that."

After a dramatic final day to the 2011-2012 season, Spurs secured their place in the top four after beating London rivals Fulham 2-0 at White Hart Lane.

They finished just one point behind third place Arsenal, who themselves beat West Brom 3-2 at The Hawthorns to confirm their automatic Champions League qualification.

Despite just missing out on third spot, Redknapp says that he is extremely proud of his players, as he reflected on a 'fantastic season' for the club.

"To finish fourth in a Champions League place, we can't ask for more than that," he added. "To finish above Liverpool and Chelsea, to be right up there, one point behind Arsenal in the end, it's been a fantastic achievement.

"We played some amazing football this season and to finish in the top four is great for us."

Now all the club and fans can do is wait for Chelsea to lose the Champions League Final on Saturday against Bayern Munich, otherwise Spurs will face another season in the Europa League.

Perhaps not getting the England job will be a blessing in disguise for both Redknapp and Tottenham, who will be looking to come back even stronger next year.
