Harry Redknapp’s top 10 quotes and videos

Harry Redknapp is one of the more entertaining football managers out there and here we honour him with a selection of  some his finest work.

1. Spurs have just drawn with Leeds in the FA Cup and Harry gets asked if a replay was wanted, and gets a worthy answer:

2. Harry Redknapp shows his foreign imports how it’s done:

“Samassi Abou don’t speak the English too good.”

3. If only Redknapp’s current crop of injury prone players could be cured as easily as his then Southampton striker Kenwyne Jones:

“He took a knock on his ankle but we played him some Bob Marley reggae music and he was fine.”

4. After qualifying for the Champions League, Redknapp’s squad show him some appreciation:

5. Of all the strikers Harry has managed, and that’s a lot, it is safe to say that Darren Bent wasn’t one of his favourites:

“You will never get a better chance to win a match than that. My missus could have scored that one.”

6. Redknapp is thankful for the consideration shown by Arsenal’s frontman after the Gunners were reduced to ten men against Harry’s Saints:

“Van Persie obviously thought ‘why take the piss out of poor old Southampton? I’ll get sent off and make a game of it’.”

7. Redknapp knew Benjani needed some help with his finishing at Pompey, but it didn’t all go to plan:

“After shooting practise yesterday, I had to drive up the M27 and collect four balls.”

8. Redknapp relives some of his best times with Paolo Di Canio, featuring his best Italian accent:

9. A somewhat modest Harry comments on his worth in that great Hammers side of the sixties:

“Even when they had Moore, Hurst and Peters, West Ham’s average finish was about 17th. It just shows how crap the other 8 of us were.”

10. An interview on the training ground and shooting practise nearby…
