Harry Redknapp paid tribute to Michael Dawson after the skipper completed three matches in a week following his long-term injury.
Michael was out of action for four months as he recovered from an Achilles problem.
He returned for the FA Cup third round win against Cheltenham and followed up against Everton on Wednesday and Wolves on Saturday.
"Michael's performed miracles," said Harry. "He's a fantastic professional, the most honest, wholehearted person you could meet.
"He had one week's training and to play three games in a week was asking an awful lot of him.
"After he played on Wednesday, I asked him how he felt and he said 'I'll be all right for Saturday'.
"He wants to play every game but I've probably stretched him to the limit.
"He's an amazing lad, the type of player and person that makes a football club."
