Portsmouth manager Harry Redknapp has spoken out about reports linking him to the Newcastle United manager position.
Harry Redknapp – not coming to Newcastle United
As we had expected Harry would not be interested in the job, as he is very happy at Portsmouth where he has done a fabulous hob on the south coast.
Harry said this morning:
“I really do not know anything about this. I have not spoken to anyone from Newcastle.” “When I saw Sam had left my immediate thoughts were that Alan Shearer was a certainty to take over.”
“There’s nothing in my being linked with the job. I had an offer not so long ago to take over at what I consider a massive club but I didn’t go.â€
“I am happy down on the south coast.”
Wonder who the massive club was â€“ Tottenham Hotspur perhaps?
We like Harry and heâ€™s a very good manager and a real football man. Heâ€™s very like Bobby Robson, in that he has that personal charm about him. But we hardly expected Harry to close up shop to come up to Newcastle at his age. So Harry can be crossed off the list.
Wonder if itâ€™s Mark Hughes of Blackburn?
