“I feel Tottenham have gotten so many common gamers, we speak about the strain Spurs have on them to get within the prime 4, however when you take Kane and Son out of that workforce, Spurs are a median Premiership workforce and I’m being well mannered.”
Redknapp replied: “I don’t suppose it’s a median workforce, no, or a median squad. It’s full of internationals, there’s rather a lot of high quality on this workforce, I don’t suppose they’re enjoying to their most. If you have a look at the again 4, Dier performs for his nation, Sanchez performs for Colombia, Lloris performs for the primary nation.”
Keane: “Playing in your nation doesn’t make you a very good participant. If you’ll be able to entice a ball you’ll be able to play in your nation nowadays. It doesn’t make you a prime participant. Dier has been giving targets away each week, final week he gave a objective away.”
Redknapp: “Yeah, he most likely has. He’s been chopping and altering, enjoying with a distinct participant each week, that doesn’t assist. I don’t suppose that Jose is aware of his finest workforce however I don’t suppose you’ll be able to flip round and say this isn’t a powerful squad – it’s full of internationals.”
Keane: “Being a world doesn’t make you a very good participant.”
Redknapp: “Are you saying these aren’t good gamers, Roy? Are you saying that Alderweireld, who performs for Belgium, is he not a very good participant?”
Keane: “He’s not unhealthy. Would he get into any of the highest groups in England? Man United wouldn’t take him, Man City wouldn’t contact him, I’m not even certain Leicester would take him.”
Redknapp: “I feel he’s a greater participant than what you’re saying, Roy. He’d get into your Man United workforce proper now.”
Keane: “I feel Spurs had been higher two or three years in the past with Trippier, Eriksen and when Alli had the starvation. Spurs are good on their day, like heaps of groups. Jamie makes the purpose there that they’ve obtained heaps of internationals. If you entice the ball, you’re going to play in your nation. If you don’t play in your nation now, you’re a unhealthy participant.”
Redknapp: “That’s not what I’m saying, Roy.”
Keane: “Jamie, which gamers from this Spurs workforce would get in Liverpool, Man City or Chelsea’s workforce? You wouldn’t contact any of them, other than Son and Kane.”
Redknapp: “Hojbjerg? Alderweireld would get in Man United’s workforce proper now, I feel he would. I don’t suppose the goalkeeper is nice sufficient. The two right-backs, nah, I don’t belief them. The again 4 isn’t adequate. Reguilon is nearly as good of a left-back than there’s within the nation, so I feel you’ve obtained that flawed. I feel he’s a category participant.”
Keane: “That’s why Real Madrid let him go.”
