Harry Redknapp talks about next season's Champions League, Ledley King, his favourite goal of the season and our famous 9-1 triumph over Wigan in the current issue of hotspur magazine.

In his exclusive Q&A with fans, the Spurs boss also discusses the managers who have influenced him, the World Cup and golf's Ryder Cup as he anticipates a great summer of sport.

But he rightly urges caution as we anticipate our first steps in Europe's elite competition, pointing out that we face a qualifying round that will feature some strong opposition.

Harry says: "It was a marvellous team effort...the players were fantastic. There's a great feeling about the place...it was a smashing season, I loved it.

"But we have to remember that we face a qualifying round and there are some good teams in there. I'm certainly hopeful. Now we have to wait for the draw in August but it's a fantastic achievement to be in there."

Meanwhile, Harry is full of admiration for captain King, whose own conclusion to the season was inspirational to those around him. He's asked: "How good could Ledley be if he was injury free?"

The manager answers: "Unbelievable really, he's an amazing footballer. He's top, top drawer. How he can not train regularly and then play like he did at City defied logic. It was amazing."

On Wigan? "One of those days when everything went in. We've been a good team to watch and I take great pride in how we play."

And Harry's goal of the season? "Danny Rose. That takes some beating...a special goal."

And the June issue of our official monthly magazine takes some beating if you're a Spurs fan. Don't miss it! Click below to buy your copy online...
