Praise for Jamie

Posted on 29 October 2002  - 12:00

Tottenham Hotspur (Spurs) Football Club is located in North London. The club is also known as Spurs. Tottenham's home ground is White Hart Lane. The club motto is Audere est Facere (To dare is to do).

Glenn Hoddle says Jamie Redknapp's reception at Liverpool reflects his qualities as both a professional and person.

A former Reds skipper and Anfield favourite for 11 years, Jamie received a standing ovation from all sides of the famous stadium both before kick-off and when he was substituted in injury time.

After all the attention surrounding his return, Jamie was happy just to let his feet do the talking with another solid display in central midfield.

Jamie, alongside Steffen Freund, matched pass for pass and tackle for tackle the formidable Liverpool axis of Hamann and Diao in one of the afternoon's key battles.

Unfortunately, it wasn't enough as Michael Owen's late penalty earned maximum points for the Premiership leaders.

Glenn said: "It's great to see him back on a football pitch, injury free, and he's playing back-to-back games.

"The reception proves one what a fine footballer he is and two, the respect he's got. It was a nice touch from the Liverpool fans, who are probably the fairest in the country. It was nice and says a lot for the boy.

"We're just delighted to see him playing football again after the luck he's had for the last three or four years.

"He's been playing terrific for us. He's kept the ball and I think him and Steffen in that midfield ran the show for us at times, it was good to see, but, again, we haven't won the game."
