Redknapp On £4million Bonus To Keep Spurs In The Premier League

New Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp is set to collect a cool £4million bonus if he can keep Spurs in the Premier League, according to The Mirror.

Redknapp took the helm at the North London club last Sunday in a shock move, with the 61-year-old leaving Portsmouth to replace Juande Ramos at White Hart Lane, who eventually paid the price for overseeing the worst start to a season in Tottenham’s history after nearly a year in charge of Spurs.

Tottenham were rooted to the bottom of the Premiership when Redknapp arrived, without a win and with only two points from eight games played. However, just the presence of Redknapp in the dugout for the Premier League clash against Bolton Wanderers seemed to inspire to Spurs to their first win of the season.

This was followed by the 4-4 North London derby thriller against Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium last Wednesday, where Tottenham came from two goals behind in the dying minutes and a last gasp injury time winner against early Premiership pacesetters Liverpool at White Hart Lane on Saturday.

The seven points from the three games that Spurs have collected since Redknapp has been in charge at Tottenham have seen the North London club climb off the bottom of the Premier League. With Redknapp a certainty to collect his bonus from Spurs chairman Daniel Levy if his new charges continue to pick up results after the turnaround of the last week, which has lifted the mood at Tottenham.
