Harry Redknapp says his old team West Ham’s victories on the road at Arsenal and Liverpool are the club’s best in two decades.
Speaking at the Football For Peace event in Greenwich, the former Hammers boss heaped praise on current manager Slaven Bilic.
Redknapp said: “I brought Slaven to the club when I was manager there and it’s good to see him and [assistant manager] Julian Dicks working together again.
“Those wins at Arsenal and Liverpool were fantastic – two of their greatest from the past 20 years.”
Despite piling praise on Bilic, Redknapp does not think the Hammers are ready to pull up any trees in search of European qualification.
“I think they will finish mid-table,” he said. “They are moving to a new stadium soon, so at the moment it is more important than anything they keep their Premier League status.”
Redknapp was managing an all-star team in the Football For Peace event at the Old Naval College in Greenwich.
The event, held to help improve relations between Britain and Afghanistan, featured notable former pros including Robbie Savage, Ally McCoist and Shaun Derry. Redknapp was shown a red card after amusingly staging a one-man pitch invasion during the match.
