 I speak to Daniel every day and he wants me to stay at the club. But at the moment he hasn't made me an offer of a contract and I haven't pushed him to either.

 Yes of course. It's nice if people put me in a position where they think I've got a chance of getting the job. It is flattering, other managers have come out and said nice things and I appreciate everybody's support really. I've had great support from everybody and that's important.

 Let them have it. Good luck to them! It will be interesting, won't it? I was at Old Trafford last Saturday and it was great hearing the Wolves fans chanting to the United supporters 'Thursday night, Channel Five'

 It's going to be a difficult game, obviously they are a great side. But you have to look forward to games like this. These are the great days in your life and great days in Tottenham's history. You couldn't have a more exciting or tougher game.

 I think he would like to see what the future holds for him. He's a busy lad, his life must be unbelievable, but when you get a lad who wants to come here and train every day when he could be sitting at home having a month's rest, it tells you everything about him. He loves football. 
— Harry Redknapp about David Beckham / February 22, 2011

 He's been great to have around the place and he's just a top-class bloke, a proper good lad. He's welcome back any time. I think he would have brought something to the team if we could have got him on loan. But who knows? It's not impossible that he may be back here in the future. He can still play, he still pick a pass out. I've not looked into bringing him back in November - the chairman would need to look at that, I don't know what the financial side of it would be - I wouldn't have a clue how much it would cost.

 I think everyone that gets in it [the Europa League] wants to be out of it. They put reserve teams out every game. We want Champions League football again next year - it has been enjoyable and we want it. 
— Harry Redknapp saying nobody wants to play in the Europa League / February 12, 2011
 Liverpool are coming into it now so don't write them off. They have some good players and are a good side. The manager has them playing and they will be close. Manchester United, Man City, Chelsea and Arsenal - you have to finish above one of them. It won't be easy but we have a chance. We have to keep winning, we can't afford to slip up.
