Redknapp hopes to bring Beckham back



David Beckham’s spell training with Tottenham ended this week, but Harry Redknapp has claimed ‘it is not impossible’ that David Beckham could return to play for his North London side.

Redknapp is a long time admirer of Beckham, and knows that his experience, professionalism and his exquisite right foot could be strengths that would boost his squad.

Beckham initially moved to Spurs to play, but insurance issues scuppered any chance of a loan deal and the player trained with the squad instead.

After 6 weeks of training Redknapp has seen enough to know that Beckham could be vital to adding the knowhow to a team already doing well in both league (4th) and Champions League.

When Redknapp was asked if he thought Beckham would consider a return to the Premier League with Spurs, he said, “Yes, 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.

“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 picks 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.

Whatever the cost, the former England captain would be worth it in shirt sales alone.
