Harry Redknapp described 2011-12 as a 'fantastic season' after we secured fourth place for only the second time in the Premier League.

That would normally be good enough for a place in the Champions League but as we all know, we now have to wait for the outcome of Saturday’s Champions League Final.

Chelsea travel to Bayern Munich knowing that victory in the final will mean the Blues take our place in next season’s competition.

Goals from Emmanuel Adebayor and Jermain Defoe ensured the team did the job with a 2-0 win against an impressive Fulham side on Sunday.

That meant Arsenal had to win at West Brom to stay third and despite trailing 2-1, they managed a 3-2 win to hold on.

“It’s been a fantastic season,” said Harry.

“To finish fourth in a Champions League place, we can’t ask for more than that. To finish above Liverpool and Chelsea, to be right up there, one point behind Arsenal in the end, it’s been a fantastic achievement.

“We played some amazing football this season and to finish in the top four is great for us.

“Tottenham have only finished in the top four twice since the Premier League started and I’ve been lucky enough to be manager both times. I’m very proud of that.”

Asked about wanting Bayern Munich to beat Chelsea on Saturday, Harry added: "I’d be a liar if I said otherwise. Tottenham is my team. I just want us to be in the Champions League next season."
