Bournemouth Bring Back Harry Redknapp
Former Portsmouth and West Ham manager Harry Redknapp has gone back to where it all began as he takes up an advisory role at League One Bournemouth.
Redknapp was sacked at the end of last season by Tottenham Hotspur but he hasn’t taken long to find a route back into football after re-joining Bournemouth whom he played for and managed in the 70’s and 80’s.
Chairman Eddie Mitchell was delighted to be able to bring Redknapp back and hopes he can help manager Paul Groves in his new advisory role.
“I met Harry for a chat this morning and he offered to come in on a voluntary basis,” said Mitchell.
“He still has a passion for the club and for football, and he’s got too much to offer for us to let him slip through our fingers.”
“It’s been in my mind for quite some time to get him involved, and the timing seems to be perfect for us to tap into his knowledge.”
Redknapp is set to travel with the squad to Yeovil for their League One clash and hopes to help turn the Cherries fortunes around in he league this season.
