Sky Sports is reporting this afternoon they believe Harry Redknapp is on a plane heading into Newcastle, to discuss the management position at Newcastle with Chris Mort.
Harry Redknapp – jetting into Newcastle?
We have no idea if this is true or not, but that’s the report . However, we find it hard to believe that Harry would leave the South of England, where he has managed all his life to take the stressful job at Newcastle.
His wife Louise, who is the sister of Frank Lampard Senior, wouldn’t want to live in the North East either, we’re almost sure of that. But there again, Harry may be jetting in to at least discuss what he may be missing. It’s hard to turn something down, until you know what it is.
Certainly the wages will be more than he is getting at Portsmouth, but so will the hassle and stress. We don’t think there’s much chance of Harry taking over at Newcastle United.
Since it seems that Mike Ashley wants an English manager it would seem that Blackburn manager Mark Hughes would be the more likely to take over the reigns at the club. But Mark is hardly a proven manager at the higher levels of the Premiership, and he would need time at Newcastle, just like Sam did – but didn’t get from owner Mike Ashley.What do you think?
