Here to win

Harry Redknapp is after silverware in China.

We kick-off the Barclays Asia Trophy with the tournament opener against West Ham tonight (Wednesday, July 29, 6pm local time/11am UK) at the Worker's Stadium in Beijing. Hull City follow against local side Beijing Gouan.

It's been a busy pre-season schedule so far including the Wembley Cup over the weekend but Harry is determined to show China what we're all about.

In fact, having won the last staging of the tournament with Portsmouth in Hong Kong in 2007, he's in effect defending the trophy!

Harry said: "We're very pleased to be here and we're looking forward to it - this is great tournament.

"We're here to win. I played in the tournament with Portsmouth in Hong Kong a couple of years ago and it was fantastic for us.

"We beat Liverpool in the final, it gave us confidence and we then got off to a great start in the Premier League.

"Hopefully we can so the same. We're here to play as well as we can and we'll do our very best to pick up the trophy."
