Harry Redknapp faces five week rest

Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp has stated that he has been advised to rest for up to five weeks after his heart operation, but hopes to return to football before that.

The White Hart Lane boss underwent surgery to unblock two coronary arteries last week, and has been absent from the London club’s last two fixtures.

Whilst resting at home following the procedure, Redknapp has revealed that medical advice calls for an extended layoff.

“The doctor is telling me I shouldn’t even think about returning for at least four to five weeks. I hope to be back before then,” he told Sky News.

Meanwhile, Mirror Football indicate that Spurs are ready to offer their main man a new deal, in light of rumoured interest from the FA in making the 64-year the next England manager.

The newspaper indicate that Tottenham will offer Redknapp a new three-year deal, despite the fact that the coach still has 18 months left on his current contract.

Redknapp has been one of the main reasons for Tottenham’s revival over the last number of years, and his side are currently in excellent form, winning seven out of their last eight league games.
