Harry Redknapp puts his name forward for Sunderland job

4 years ago

Harry Redknapp has thrown his name into the hat for the Sunderland job.

Asked if he would be interested in completing the great job that Simon Grayson has made a remarkable start on, Redknapp refused to rule himself out and talked up the job, saying he was bored on the managerial scrapheap.

The rumour/perception always was that Harry Redknapp wouldn’t be interested in managing away from the south but with his reduced circumstances/standing, he took the Birmingham job last season, only to be sacked very early on this campaign.

A lot of amusing candidates (see betting below) but it would be great to see ‘Arry and his amazing accountant dog (Sunderland could do with one of those as well by the looks of it!) rock up at the Stadium of Light.

Harry Redknapp speaking on Talksport:

“I’m getting  bored and (wife) Sandra is getting bored of me.

“It (Sunderland) is a fantastic football club, great tradition, and I go a long way back with Sunderland.

“It shouldn’t be where it is.”
