Redknapp interested in signing Beckham
Friday 24 April 2009
Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp has said he would like to bring David Beckham to White Hart Lane should the opportunity arise.
"I have not thought about David Beckham, but it would be disrespectful of me to say I would not be interested in him, were he to become available," Redknapp said in the Evening Standard.
"David Beckham is a fantastic player, but he is also a terrific role model and a terrific professional. If the opportunity was there to sign him, any club would have to think about it.
"He would still be a terrific player. His delivery of the ball remains exceptional, he is a great trainer and he is a local boy from up the road.
"Imagine what the young players at the club could get from someone like that," Redknapp added.
Beckham is currently with AC Milan, before returning to LA Galaxy at the end of the Serie A season under the terms of his loan agreement with the Italian giants.
The former England captain knows he must stay match fit if he is to secure a place in England's World Cup squad for South Africa, meaning another loan spell away from Galaxy is a strong possibility.
