Harry Redknapp has urged Uefa to take action against Mathieu Flamini after claiming the AC Milan midfielder's challenge on Vedran Corluka could have broken the Tottenham Hotspur defender's leg.

Corluka was stretchered off at the San Siro 10 minutes into the second half of Tottenham's famous 1-0 win over Milan in the first leg of the last 16 Champions League tie.

Former Arsenal midfielder Flamini's two-footed lunge on Corluka only warranted a yellow card from the referee, but Redknapp is adamant the Frenchman should have been sent off.

Redknapp is waiting to learn the results of an X-ray on Corluka's injury and is optimistic the Croatia international has not broken his leg.

However, the Spurs boss is eager for Uefa to take retrospective action against Flamini for his 'horrendous' challenge on Corluka.


"The tackle from Flamini was horrendous," said Redknapp.

"He was two feet off the floor. It was a leg-breaking tackle. He's done some damage to him.

"He'll probably have an X-ray tomorrow (Wednesday).

"I don't think there's anything broken but he could have broken his leg, easily.

"I'd like them (Uefa) to have a look at that tackle. How he doesn't give him a red card, I don't know. That's a tackle that breaks people's legs."
