Redknapp must stay - Van Der Vaart

Published Add your comment

Tottenham playmaker Rafael van der Vaart admitted it was vital manager Harry Redknapp signs a new contract at White Hart Lane as he once again refused to rule out leaving the club himself.

Redknapp has just a year left on his current deal and has reportedly hired Wayne Rooney's agent, Paul Stretford, to negotiate an extension. Stretford and Spurs chairman Daniel Levy both have reputations for striking hard bargains and it remains to be seen what length of contract 65-year-old Redknapp will be offered.

Asked if it was crucial Redknapp signed on, van der Vaart said: "Yeah, I think so. He is doing a fantastic job, so I don't see any problems. I think he's going to sign a new contract - I hope so - and I think it's also good for every team when they have a manager who's there for many years. So I hope he stays."
