Redknapp loving life at Spurs, no Chelsea interest


Harry Redknapp

Harry Redknapp will not be moving to Chelsea and insists that he is loving the challenge at Tottenham.

Press reports had claimed that Chelsea had targeted Redknapp as a replacement for Carlo Ancelotti in the summer – but Redknapp is focused on a title challenge with Tottenham.

“I don’t take a lot of notice. I just get on with it. It’s speculation,” he told the Daily Mirror.

“I’ve never spoken to anyone from Chelsea. No-one’s come to me and said that Chelsea are interested in me or anything else.

“I’ve got a job to do here. I love it here. I’m happy here.”

“I keep saying, this club isn’t that far away – if they want to push on – from winning the championship,” he said.

“You can’t stand still. It means improving. Better players make you a better team. With one or two additions, I think we can go on and push for the title.

“Everyone will go at it in the summer. Arsenal will. Liverpool will – Liverpool are going to be a team to be reckoned with next year.

“They’ve been out of the Champions League, but I don’t see that happening again after next season. With Kenny Dalglish there, I think they’ll have a real go for it.

“If you want to be a top club, you need top players. There’s no other way of doing it. There’s no magic formula.”

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Ian: Give the man a break. At least he hasn't spent weeks milking this non-story. He wouldn't even have to comment if it were not for made up stories like this.

    Anyone with reasonable degree of sense would have none this was just a made up story, and you are criticising his response. If that had been Sven, he would have had his agent camped outside Abramovich's home explaining that he wants help to engineer his dismissal from his current job, so that he can sting them for compensation, but during the meantime, please keep the job open for him.

    I don't suggest for one moment that you believed the story, but I do suspect that some fans will criticise HR, whatever he does. Call me fickle if you like, but when we return to the mediocrity that we were under Ramos, I will probably call for his head. I know I might be wrong, but I am stupid enough to believe that HR has to take some responsibility for our upturn in fortunes.
