Harry Redknapp to honour contract

Harry Redknapp has hit out at rumours that he has quit as Tottenham boss, stating that he intends to honour the last year of his contract.

The north London club’s manager has been linked with a move away from White Hart Lane due to his precarious contract situation, and as such reports have emerged that he had walked away from the club.

However, an angry Redknapp has confirmed that he is still Spurs’ boss and would be for next season.

“No, I haven’t resigned, and I have no idea why it is being suggested that I have resigned,” he told Sky Sports.

“This is an outrage; an absolute liberty for people to be putting around this kind of rumour on the internet.

“It is not true, there is not a chance I will resign. Why should I? I have a year left on my contract.”

Redknapp’s contract situation is set to be negotiated this summer, as he is in the last 12 months of his current deal.
