Former Premier League manager expresses his interest in Ipswich Town job



Harry Redknapp has claimed that he is interested in taking the Ipswich Town job.

Speaking on the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast show on talkSPORT, as reported via TWTD, Redknapp has revealed that he would be interested in taking the vacant managerial post at Ipswich.

Since leaving Birmingham City earlier in the season, Redknapp has not had a role.

His previous experience is impressive, having managed the likes of West Ham United, Portsmouth, Tottenham Hotspur, Southampton and Queens Park Rangers in the Premier League.

The veteran manager has cited his special relationship with Ipswich owner Marcus Evans as a factor behind his interest in the job and he has reportedly helped Evans make decisions in the past.

Redknapp told the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast show: “It’s a real good club and I know the owner Marcus Evans. He’s got my number and I’m here, Marcus.”

Whether Redknapp’s words were meant as tongue in cheek remain to be seen but with many managers being considered, the 71-year-old could have just thrown his name into the hat.

Ipswich have been considering a number of options with the likes of Portsmouth manager Kenny Jackett, Lincoln City boss Danny Cowley and former Derby, Newcastle and England chief Steve McClaren.

The Verdict

After failing in his last few jobs, perhaps Redknapp is not the wisest choice. How serious he is being and how seriously Ipswich would consider his interest remains to be seen. But you can never rule out anything with Redknapp.
