Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp is on Mission Recruitment next month (more of the same at White Hart Lane, it seems) and has been lining up a number of decent and top quality players. And among his wish-list is Steve Finnan.
British tabloid The Daily Mail has reported that Spurs are eying Steve Finnan for a move back to England. The former Liverpool right back is currently with Spanish club Espnayol and is down and seemingly out with injury and poor form in Catalunya.
Finnan has been unable to settle in La Liga and is not even guaranteed a place in relegation-threatened Espanyol’s starting XI. He joined the Barcelona based club at the end of last season and has featured only four times for the Spanish club so far this season.
But Redknapp apparently fosters the belief that Steve Finnan could revitalize himself back in England. Honestly, Finnan didn’t make a very wise decision to move from the Premier League to la Liga at the end of last season. Moreover, he had moved to Espanyol, a club that had so spectacularly gone on a slide down the hill from the middle of last season.
Should Finnan indeed return to England next month and play for Spurs, then there is a very good chance that we shall see the old Steve Finnan once again and also show Rafa that he can still play at the top level.
