Tottenham Boss Harry Redknapp Compares William Gallas To Bobby Moore After Champions League Victory Over Werder Bremen

'I made him captain and he responded again', says boss
Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp has showered praise on William Gallas by comparing him to legendary England defender Bobby Moore.

Gallas was in top form as Spurs managed to register a strong 3-0 victory over Werder Bremen en route to carving out a place in the last 16 of the Champions League.

"William was fantastic again, particularly when Marin squared him up around the box and I thought we were in trouble," said Redknapp, according to The Telegraph.

"He shuffled him down the line and kept holding him up, and took the ball off him. It was a bit reminiscent of Bobby [Moore] doing that to [Brazil's] Jairzinho at the World Cup [in 1970].

"Bobby stayed on his feet and used his brain and William has done fantastic for us. I made him captain and he responded again."

Spurs play Twente away from home in their final game of the group stage, and the gaffer is now hoping that his side take the top spot by getting the right result against the Dutch side.

Redknapp said: "We've enjoyed it so far and if we can get a result at Twente and win the group I think it's a big advantage to try and finish [on top of the group] if we possibly could."
