Harry Redknapp has been linked with the job at Elland Road

CanH Exclusive by Hughie Southon

Harry Redknapp – for me the most charismatic and colourful Hammers boss ever – will not be helping relegation strugglers Leeds United to avoid the drop.

Reports claimed that he  could be on his way north which might have put the Hammers in line for competition from H should he be the new man at the helm up there.

But the former Hammer has made it clear in an exclusive interview with Claret and Hugh that it won’t be happening.

He told us a few minutes ago: “I really have no idea where that came from, There has been no approach at all so no it isn’t happening.”

The veteran boss however still isn’t ready to close the door on a return to management and said: “If any club wants me to assist in a capacity I am always ready to talk.”

And as far as West Ham’s current situation is concerned he added: ” They are looking  better now and I think thy will probably be ok.”

Maybe, but as for me I’d love to see him back home at the Hammers despite him being 75 years old.

Ok I’ve just put my tin hat on!!!!

In the meantime watch out for the odd exclusive CandH blog from our Harry.

  1. Could not agree more. Come on Harry join us again. Attacking football, style and a Manager who knows what they are doing. Oh yes please.

  2. I’m in the ‘love Harry’ camp but then I am in his age group, and perhaps we are both a bit long in the tooth! I just know I was really pumped with ‘Arry at the helm, the great maverick who seemingly could throw double six regularly. When the club sold Rio and refused to give him squad money, that was a disaster. We lost H, the Lampards and all credibility at a stroke.

  3. Blimey take the rose tinted glasses off folks.
    Harry loved spending other people’s money, some good a lot bad. Dodged relegation between odd good season. Sounds like what we have so no change there!

  4. He was a good manager for us and Spuds and outstanding for Bournemouth. Don’t see a problem in an advisory role. Could be an asset.
