Niko Kranjcar tells October's hotspur magazine how the chance to work again with Harry Redknapp was one of the key factors in joining us at the start of the month.
The Croatian star was snapped-up from Portsmouth right at the end of the summer transfer window and has now played three times, impressing in his full debut againt Burnley on Saturday.
Of course, Niko played under Harry at Pompey and he was delighted to team-up with his former boss at the Lane.
"Harry has had a massive influence on my career," Niko tells hotspur, our official club magazine. "He gave me my first chance to play abroad, settled me in slowly during my early days in England and then showed belief in me.
"His man-management skills make every player want to play for him and his football experience and knowledge of the game are big plus points as well."
