Harry will bring in own help - Pleat

David Pleat believes Harry Redknapp will need ''help'' at Tottenham - but not from anyone with the title of director of football.

Pleat previously held such a role at Tottenham and sees it as an important position, but only if the incumbent complements the manager.

Spurs scrapped the post after sacking Damien Comolli, along with manager Juande Ramos, at the weekend and new boss Redknapp is to choose his own backroom staff.

Pleat feels the former Portsmouth boss will also need to bring in someone to help with administrative duties - a director of football - but stresses that using that title would be a PR disaster.

Pleat told BBC Radio Five Live: ''The name of director of football does not seem to sound well in this country.

''The perception is he is an interferer who doesn't do his job and makes it difficult for the manager.

''That is not so, you have only go to look back to Brian Clough and Peter Taylor. Brian Clough was the front man, the manager, who got all the credit and Peter was in the background. It depends on lines of communication, respect.''

Redknapp had two spells in charge of Portsmouth, either side of a stint with their rivals Southampton, and won the FA Cup last year.

He has also managed West Ham in the top flight but Pleat believes Spurs will be his biggest challenge.

He added: ''Tottenham has a great tradition and history that completely eclipses the values and demands of Southampton or Portsmouth, with the greatest respect.

''Harry will be in a greater goldfish bowl there and he will find it a very big job.

''He can't just deal with the first team - this club has a very wider aspect, there are all sorts of commercial areas, there is a high turnover, there is an academy to look after.

''The attention on a Tottenham manager is great and he will need help. It is important he accumulates a good staff around him - what he calls them is the trick.

''Don't call anyone director of football - the press, the media, the supporters do not understand it and will not accept it.''
