Redknapp wants fifth

Ahead of Tottenham Hotspur’s fifth place showdown with Liverpool on Sunday, manager Harry Redknapp has admitted he wants a fifth place finish. 

The club havent finished fifth since Martin Jol guided the club the the same position at the end of 2007. However, after last years fourth place finish, Redknapp is determined to guide the club to the highest possible position it can achieve. 

Ahead of Sunday’s encounter with Liverpool, Redknapp said “You always want to finish as high as you can and I want to go to Liverpool on Sunday and try to win that game.

“It’s important for us. We want that fifth spot now if we can make it.

“We know it’s not going to be easy because Liverpool have hit top form.

“Kenny has done a fantastic job since he took over. He’s top man, different class, a proper legend. He’s Liverpool through and through and he’s been fantastic for them.

“They’ve been on a great run and that happens. We’ve been on not such a good run, drawing lots of games. We’ve had some tough games to finish the season but we’ve played very well. We played well at Chelsea, played well at City on Tuesday night, we’ve just not been able to the results.”

Liverpool currently occupy the one and only Europa League spot with two points seperating both sides. A win for the Merseysiders will see them guaranteed European football next season.
