Harry Redknapp: Four players have carried Tottenham Hotspur this season

Former Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp has suggested his old side have become over reliant on a small group of players.

Former Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp told talkSPORT he feels there is a group of players who have carried his old side this season.

Spurs won’t be playing in the Champions League next season, but one of the shining lights for the team this year has been the way the younger players have excelled when handed chances by current manager Mauricio Pochettino.

“The kids this year; the Harry Kanes, the Ryan Masons, the Bentalebs, Danny Rose, the kids have really carried them this year,” said Redknapp.

Harry Kane has been the main man in attack for Tottenham, rising to the position of the club’s top scorer and signing a new contract at White Hart Lane.

Ryan Mason and Nabil Bentaleb have both played effectively in midfield and have been ever presents, while Danny Rose has held off the competition for his place from new signing Ben Davies effectively.

It’s really positive for the club that Pochettino has a core group of younger players who are all doing great work for the side, but what they perhaps lack is a little bit of experience.

Pochettino will already have one eye on the summer transfer market and ways he can improve his squad and there is an arguable need for him to bring in some older heads in key positions, as well as some support for Kane at the top of the team.

Tottenham will go again for the top four next year and if the boss recruits well, the team have every chance of being successful.
