Harry Redknapp has rued Tottenham’s lost chance to qualify for the Champions League as the season comes to an end, but believes his squad can challenge for qualification next year, despite Manchester City’s super transfer budget.

"They've got players there now earning £200,000 a week. I mean, it's crazy, isn't it? It's another world really, isn't it?,” Redknapp said, in regards to the money City have to spend on players.


Tottenham are currently placed sixth in the Barclays Premier League table, but have a game in hand over fifth placed Liverpool. What seemed to be a season with Champions League qualification a possibility, and a Europa place a definite, has turned into a challenege for Tottenham to play in any European competition.

But Redknapp believes the squad’s closeness to the coveted Champions League place (Spurs will be within three points of City if they win tonight) is proof of their progress this season, and the manager will be working hard next season so they can qualify again.

"I have a long-term plan. I'm going to work hard with the under-nines,” Redknapp joked.

"What can you do though?

"I don't know. We'll have another go next year.

“We've got good players here. It's hard but we are close this year."
