New Queens Park Rangers boss Harry Redknapp has admitted that his new job is on par with the most difficult of his career, but yet he is confident of survival.
“I have taken on some massive challenges in my life — but the one I’m about to get stuck into at QPR is certainly as big as any in the past,” Redknapp wrote in The Sun.
“When I went back to Portsmouth for the second time seven years ago, that was a hell of a job, because they were right down there and a lot of the big names had left.
“But the Rangers job is most definitely on a par with that — I just hope it will have the same outcome as we managed at Pompey.
“And although there are plenty of people who seem to be writing them off already, it’s one I am hugely confident of achieving.
“I must admit a couple of days ago I didn’t think I’d be spending Saturday afternoon in the stands at Old Trafford.
“Not unless they had come up with a very tempting hospitality package for me!”
