HARRY WANTS NEW CONTRACT
Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp has said that he wants to sign a new contract with the club and is ready to talk with the board regarding an extension. The former Portsmouth manager has only one year left on his current deal, with Tottenham yet to offer him a new contract.
It is thought that his differences with chairman Daniel Levy is responsible for the lack of interest from the club to extend his contract. However, Harry Redknapp has come out publicly and said that he wants to extend his Tottenham stay. He has managed to transform the image of Tottenham and has brought excellent success on the field.
Even though the club has failed to qualify for the Champions League for the second consecutive season, they have come extremely close to achieving the same. Tottenham finished the season in the fourth position, but were denied the opportunity to play in the Champions League next season due to the fact that Chelsea FC were in the competition as the competition winners and the defending club.
Harry Redknapp was linked heavily with the England managerial job, which was ultimately given to former West Brom manager Roy Hodgson. Now that the England Football speculation is behind him, Redknapp has said that he wants to extend his Tottenham contract.
"I've never had a problem with Daniel Levy. I've probably got on as well with Daniel as I could any... People keep talking about our relationship. I've never had a minute's problem with Daniel Levy in terms of falling out with him or whatever. I don't even know where that comes from. The simple situation is, I've got a year left on my contract. It's up to Tottenham whether they want to extend that contract or not," said Harry Redknapp when speaking on the Sky Sports News.
