Harry ‘I Trust Heuelho Gomes’ Redknapp recalls Ben Alnwick from loan
What Harry says and what Harry does
Earlier this week, Spurs manager Harry Redknapp came out in defence of under-fire keeper Heurelho Gomes. Redknapp said: “He’s our number one so he’s got to do the job – we’re relying on him heavily. I believe in him and we have to believe in him.”
Rough translation: our reserve keeper (Cesar Sanchez) is even worse so it looks like I will have to keep picking him until January.
Redknapp has now recalled young keeper Ben Alnwick from his loan spell at Carlisle United. So to clarify, the Tottenham boss – who has no intention of dropping ‘Safehands’ Gomes – has cut short some guaranteed first-team football for a 21-year-old keeper to make him third-choice at White Hart Lane. That makes sense.
