Jamie Redknapp: Swansea Lacked Ambition At Spurs

Jamie Redknapp: Swansea Lacked Ambition At Spurs

Sky Sports pundit Jamie Redknapp said Swansea City lacked ambition in their 1-0 defeat at Spurs this afternoon in his post-match analysis at White Hart Lane.

The former Liverpool midfielder told of Swansea's lack of shorts on target, believing manager Michael (not Brian Jamie!) Laudrup would be 'horrified' by that stat. The Swans managed just 3 efforts on goal, all off target. Spurs in comparison created 15 opportunities.

Despite a lack of attacking threat, the Swans were heading for a decent point thanks to an excellent defensive display, but centre back Jan Vertonghen netted on the 75th minute following a free-kick.

Redknapp said:

'It was a big three points for Tottenham, you can't always be at your best and the crowd had to be patient,'

'They were not at their fluid best and they missed Garth Bale but it was a good finish from Vertonghen

'We should not be surprised by him scoring these sorts of goals - he scored ten for Ajax last year from centre half. It was offside so he got a little bit of luck there.

'I was surprised by the lack of ambition from Swansea today - to not have one shot on target is just so disappointing. I think they will be horrified when he sees that stat.'


Swansea's lack of points sees them go down a couple of places in the table to 10th, and they now prepare for a tough game next Sunday as they host League leaders Manchester United.

Easy to say Swansea lacked ambition but you were close to getting a point. I remember a high flying Newcastle coming to WHL last season with a brave attacking 442 and getting thumped 5-0.
