Redknapp and Parker win awards

Spurs manager and midfielder scoop Barclays awards after excellent November

Spurs won three Barclays Premier League matches in a row under Redknapp in November

Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp and midfielder Scott Parker have been named Barclays Manager of the Month and Barclays Player of the Month for November after Spurs won all three League matches.

It is the second time Redknapp has been recognised this season after also winning Barclays Manager of the Month in September.

Redknapp was at home watching Spurs first match of the month - a 3-1 win at London rivals Fulham - as he recovered from a minor heart operation.

But his work this season inspired his team to another win for Spurs, who were led by an impressive performance by midfielder Parker.

The Tottenham boss was back in the White Hart Lane dug out as Parker impressed again in their next League match as Spurs outplayed Aston Villa.

Two goals from Emmanuel Adebayor secured a well-deserved 2-0 victory.

Away success

A trip to West Bromwich Albion at the end of the month produced a second away win of the month for Redknapp’s men.

A Jermain Defoe strike sandwiched between another Adebayor double were enough to see off a battling West Brom side as Spurs came from behind to run out 3-1 winners.

Parker has been instrumental in the recent good form of Tottenham Hotspur and has formed a productive midfield partnership with Luka Modric.

The England international has endeared himself to the Spurs fans with his outstanding work rate and intelligent play.

Tottenham Hotspur’s impressive November has helped them to to third in the Barclays Premier League.

The decision was made by the Barclays Awards Panel, which includes representatives from football’s governing bodies, the media and fans.
