Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp has revealed he plans on celebrating Spurs last 16 Champions League win with a bacon sandwich and a cup of tea.
Spurs and Milan played out a tight goalless draw last night, that saw the North London side progress 1-0 on aggregate, and Redknapp became the first English boss to take a team to the Champions League Quarter Finals.
Redknapp didn’t want to get too carried away with the feat however.
Speaking after the game Harry said, “I’m not getting too carried away.
“I’m just looking forward to getting home tonight and having a cup of tea and a bacon sandwich and taking the dogs out.
“It’s a great night for Tottenham but we are not going to celebrate.”
Redknapp took over as Spurs boss two and a half years ago with the club near the bottom of the Premier League and has seen quite a turnaround under his leadership.
“This is an impossible dream that we have achieved so far,” he said.
“Two years ago if you would have said that we would have made it to the quarter-finals of the Champions League, I would have thought you were crazy.”
Spurs played well on the night and Brazilian Sandro had a storming game in the centre of midfield, stifling Milans creativity.
Milan controlled most of the game with Robinho having a shit cleared off the line by William Gallas and Pato going close in the second half but Spurs hung on to progress to the next round.
Milan coach Massimiliano Allegri was left disappointed at his teams failure to score, feeling their performance at least deserved extra time.
“We played a good game, all we could have expected,” he said. “We didn’t score and we got punished. It leaves a bitter taste.”
