Harry Redknapp believes he will be ready to return to management next season, as reported by Sky Sports News HQ.
The former West Ham, Portsmouth and Tottenham boss left his job as Queens Park Rangers manager earlier this month due to persistent problems with his knees.
But the 67-year-old has revealed that he is not ready to completely retire from football and will be available for employment in time for the start of next season.
He said: “I’ll be looking to get back in next season.
“The off-season comes and then I’ll be looking to work somewhere because I love it. I’ve got nothing else in my life really.
“I’m useless around the house and football is what I love. I still feel as good as I’ve ever felt.
“My knee will be sorted out in a week or two so I’ll be ready to go again and I’m looking forward to that.”
Redknapp left QPR struggling against relegation back to the Championship, but he believes Chris Ramsey, who replaced him at Loftus Road until the end of the season, has enough about him to keep them in the Premier League.
“For me, being on the inside, I had a feeling they might go that way and what an opportunity for him to walk straight into a Premier League club,” Redknapp admitted.
“It’s very, very open at the bottom and I think QPR have got just as much chance as the other six or seven teams that are down there.”
QPR find themselves just one place above the relegation zone, on goal difference, and face a difficult game at home to fellow Londoners Arsenal in their next top-flight outing.
That is followed by another home London derby, with Redknapp’s former side Spurs due to visit Loftus Road on March 7th.
