Yeovil Town have confirmed that manager Darren Way has asked Harry Redknapp to work in an advisory role at the club.
Redknapp was sacked by Birmingham two-and-a-half weeks ago but was seemingly ready to get back into the game in some capacity already.
The 70-year old was on BT Sport last weekend and said he would like to help out the younger managers and mentioned Darren Way and the League Two club specifically.
From there, Way was seemingly open to the offer from the ex-Spurs manager and the board sanctioned the move.
Speaking to the club’s official site, the 37-year old felt it was an easy decision to take up Redknapp’s offer.
“Harry has been in the game a long time and is someone I highly respect for all the experience he’s gained and achievements he’s accomplished. I’m still starting my journey in management and feel the opportunity to bring in someone like Harry to offer advice and pass on his knowledge is a no-brainer.”
Redknapp performed a similar role at Derby County prior to becoming Birmingham City’s manager.
This seems like a good move for all parties. Darren Way gets to lean on Redknapp who has a wealth of experience and contacts that may come handy.
Meanwhile, the ex-Birmingham manager will be involved in football once again, even if it’s not every day and it’s clearly his passion.
The Glovers boss shouldn’t feel threatened by Redknapp’s arrival and it’s not a long-term commitment, so if it doesn’t work out then the structure can revert back.
