Simon sure Jamie can get back to best

Posted on 6 May 2004  - 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).

Simon Davies believes Jamie Redknapp can get back to his full form and fitness if he can enjoy a period clear of injury.

The Welsh star was full of praise for his fellow midfielder and club captain as he reflected on a season wrecked by injury for both of them.

Jamie has certainly showed signs of returning to his best of late - not least his second half performance in the 2-2 against Arsenal, when he got us back into the game with a 25-yarder scorcher.

"He was massive in the second half against Arsenal and I think he's done really well," said Simon.

"When you've been out for a while it takes time to get back into the swing of things.

"He's been out much longer than me and he hasn't been able to string a run of games together, the last time was at the start of last season when he played 10 or 15 games and scored a couple of goals. It's not easy.

"He's such a talented player with exceptional passing qualities, he's played back-to-back games now and he'll get better and better.

"He believes he can get back to where he was in terms of form and fitness and I'm sure he can.

"It's a shame for him the season is coming to an end. It's the same for both of us really - our seasons haven't really got started.

"At least the summer gives him a chance to get 100 per cent ready for pre-season and next season.

"Jamie's a great person and a great captain, someone you can always go and talk to with a problem. He always encourages and I've thoroughly enjoyed playing with him."
