Harry Redknapp has revealed that he would return to the Tottenham dugout if Daniel Levy called him about the position before the end of the season.
The 76-year-old has long since been retired but is very highly thought of among the Spurs supporters from his days leading the Lilywhites out in the Champions League.
Memories of Luka Modric, Gareth Bale, Rafa Van der Vaart, Jermain Defoe, Peter Crouch and co are still replayed in the minds of Tottenham fans everywhere.
While Redknapp admitted it was very unlikely that Levy would call him and he is not sat by the phone waiting for a call, but would certainly answer it if it did come.
This comes after Spurs were on the wrong end of a 6-1 embarrassment yesterday, with Newcastle United tearing them apart and scoring five within the first 20 minutes of the match.
When asked if he would return as Tottenham manager, Redknapp said (TalkSPORT): “It is very, very unlikely they will come knocking for me.
“But if they did, of course, I’d go back and take it.
“I am not here sitting by the phone waiting for a call, that is for sure.
“It was disappointing to see how it turned out yesterday.
“To be fair [to Stellini], I thought he did a great interview after the match. I don’t know him, I’ve never met him.
“But he took it on the chin, a bit, didn’t he? He did make a mistake, he went to a four [at the back], the left-back is a left-winger really, a left wing-back at best, the right-back was the same.
“They were very open but it still doesn’t excuse the performance of the players and the way they played.
“The lack of effort was abysmal really, it was scary. I could see at 5-0, if Newcastle keep pushing they could get nine or 10 here.”
Spurs Web Opinion:
It sounds daft but an appointment like this back when Conte was sacked would have at least been a feel-good move. Just look at the difference Roy Hodgson has made at Crystal Palace. Spurs could have had a bit of fun with the remainder of the season, instead of the misery we have been put through.
