QPR boss welcomes Spurs to Loftus Road by claiming their reserves could compete.
QPR boss Harry Redknapp has claimed his former club Tottenham have enough quality in their squad to field two sides capable of holding their own at the top level, according to Sky Sports.
‘Spurs could field two teams who could compete in the Premier League. They have a second team who would hold their own at the top level without any problem. For a start, they have five top-class centre-backs.
They’re full of quality everywhere. It’s a similar group to the one I left but then Moussa Dembele has gone in and done well. They have an outstanding group of players, no doubt about that.’
The manager, who at one point seemed certain to take over the England job from Fabio Capello, welcomes his former club to Loftus Road insisting he feels no bad blood towards them.
Redknapp was unceremoniously dumped from the White Hart Lane job last summer despite leading Spurs to a record-equalling 4th place finish in the Premier League.
But Redknapp insists he hold no grudges against his former paymasters.
‘It will be strange but times move on and I have no bad feelings towards Tottenham. I don’t live my life like that. I had a great time there, I loved the fans and they were great to me. Not many people walk away from a club as popular as I was at that time. Normally when you leave a football club, you go out with fans shouting for you to go but I never had that. The people treated me absolutely brilliantly.’
