Mourinho delighted to face Spurs

Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho paid tribute to Harry Redknapp after revealing he is "very happy" to face Tottenham in the Champions League.

Madrid completed a 4-1 aggregate victory over Lyon on Wednesday to progress to the last eight of the competition for the first time in seven years, and their reward in Friday's quarter-final draw was a clash with Spurs.

Mourinho, who had hoped to avoid former clubs Inter Milan and Chelsea, said of the draw: "I'm very happy to play them, not because I think it's going to be easy - because I don't think it will be - but because I get to go back to London, to an English stadium and I get to see Harry and I can congratulate him for the great job he's done."
