Tottenham missed out on Luis Suarez

Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp admitted that his club tried to bring in Luis Suarez before he joined Liverpool; but decided against a move at the last minute.

Spurs thought that Suarez would be too similar to Rafael van der Vaart, and ultimately decided against bringing in the Uruguayan forward.

Redknapp admitted: "We looked at Suarez. He was a player who we probably should have taken, looking back on it. We just weren’t sure. We thought he played like Van der Vaart, but he can play anywhere."
