Harry Redknapp 'offers to come out of retirement for rest of the season and manage Premier League club'

Harry Redknapp 'offers to come out of retirement for rest of the season and manage Premier League club'

Former Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp is believed to be interested in the Leeds United head coach role until the end of the season.

Ex-Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp has opened the door for a sensational return to Premier League management after his retirement in 2017, according to stunning reports.

Redknapp’s last managerial spell came at Birmingham City, which ended with the 75-year-old former manager receiving the sacking after a poor run with the club.

Since the end of his career in management, Redknapp has been busy by entering ITV’s I’m a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here! and winning the competition in 2018.

However, it has now been reported that Redknapp is interested in taking up the vacant post at Leeds after the sacking of Jesse Marsch.

Marsch was axed less than 12 months into his spell at Elland Road and Michael Skubala was appointed interim manager as Leeds hunt for a new manager.

Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard and former Ajax boss Alfred Schreuder have both been linked with Leeds, with ex-England manager Sam Allardyce also expressing interest in the club.

According to The Daily Mirror, Redknapp would be ‘willing to step’ into the vacant Leeds post until the end of the season.

Leeds are languishing in 17th place in the league table and are only one point above 18th-place Everton and 19th-place Bournemouth.


Skubala took charge in Leeds’ 2-2 draw with Manchester United at Old Trafford before suffering a 2-0 defeat to the Red Devils at Elland Road.

Leeds confirmed in a statement that the caretaker manager will continue to stay in charge of the club while they continue their pursuit of a new head coach.

“Leeds United can confirm Michael Skubala will continue to lead the men’s first team for the club’s upcoming fixtures,” he said.

“Paco Gallardo and Chris Armas will carry on supporting Michael, alongside the backroom team already in place.

“Skubala, Gallardo and Armas have overseen two positive performances over the last week against Manchester United and will lead training ahead of this weekend’s Premier League game against Everton at Goodison Park.”
