Missing out on Gary Cahill Harry Redknapp’s biggest regret at Tottenham

Former Tottenham Hotspur boss Harry Redknapp regrets missing out on signing former Chelsea defender Gary Cahill, his son Jamie has revealed (h/t Daily Mail).

Harry Redknapp was in charge at Tottenham for four years between 2008-12. During that spell, the now-retired manager took a strong interest in Cahill following his impressive individual displays for Bolton Wanderers during the 2010-11 season (h/t Daily Mail).

However, Tottenham were beaten to the former England international’s signing by London rivals Chelsea, with whom Cahill went on to have a decorated career.

Cahill won two Premier League titles, the Champions League, two FA Cups and two of Europa League trophies at Stamford Bridge. The Englishman left the club last summer and is currently plying his trade at Crystal Palace.

And now, Jamie Redknapp has revealed that one of his father’s biggest regret during his time at Tottenham was missing out on the signing of Cahill. Speaking to the defender himself, in a video call for the Daily Mail, he said:

“I went to one of those games against Tottenham [for Bolton] and I remember my dad saying afterwards: ‘I’ve got to sign him, he’s different class.’ Then you went to Chelsea. I know for a fact one of my dad’s big regrets is missing out on you.”

Cahill, for his part, revealed that he did have a chat with Harry Redknapp over the possibility of a transfer to Tottenham, but it never materialized.

Cahill will go down as one of the modern greats of the Premier League. We can only wonder what could’ve been if Redknapp had been able to sign him for our club.
