Redknapp avoiding Premier League grounds

SoccerNews in English Premier League 7 Oct 2012


Former Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp says he does attend Premier League games as it leads to him being incorrectly linked with clubs.

Speculation has been rife about the 65-year-old’s future following his departure from White Hart Lane in June.

Redknapp recently rejoined League One outfit Bournemouth in an advisory role but insists he will not be taking a managerial position with the south of England side any time soon.

“It is difficult you know but at the moment I will be honest with you … I quite enjoyed the break in a way, it hasn’t been a problem for me,” he told Absolute Radio.

“I follow, I watch all the games on TV, I haven’t been going to any Premier League games.

“I don’t want to (have the situation of) ‘What is he doing here, he’s after the job or something?’ So I keep out the way, I have been going to Bournemouth and I definitely don’t want a job there.

“There’s certainly nothing in any of it (links to clubs), I have never spoken to anybody about going.

“I have had offers to go abroad, quite a few offers from some decent clubs to be honest, but in this country there’s nothing happening at the moment, it’s too early.

“If it was a good club, that I thought had a chance of going up and going somewhere it wouldn’t be a problem.

“I enjoy football, wherever I go, I have got no divine rights so I’m only going to manage so and so. If it is a good job and I fancy having a go I would do it.”
