Lambert praise for Redknapp

Redknapp will take League title chasing Tottenham to Carrow Road on

Tuesday evening looking for the victory that would keep them in

touch with Manchester City and United. Lambert believes Spurs’

success owes much to the influence of Redknapp, who has

masterminded the transformation from relegation contenders to

top-four candidates. “Tottenham are a top side with an absolutely

brilliant manager,” he told Canaries Player. “The way Harry manages

people and tells it how it is – he’s straight as a die that way,

gets the best out of his players. “They have a squad of world-class

players but he still has to get the best out of them, which he

does. “Every team he’s been with he’s done well. Spurs are no

different. He’s taken them from relegation to where they are now.

“I bet the atmosphere around Tottenham is very vibrant and that

will be due to him.” Lambert accepts Spurs possess a vast array of

talent, but insists Norwich will seek to humble them at Carrow

Road. “The team that he’s assembled there is absolutely top class,”

he said. “They had a fantastic run in the Champions League last

season and beat some great sides. “The players they’ve brought in

have strengthened their hand. “They are on the coat-tails of the

two Manchester clubs in the title race and they’re competing to get

in the Champions League again. “But we have to take them on because

we’re at home. We’ll try everything we can.”
