Harry Redknapp Speaks Out On Leeds United Rumours

Since Jesse Marsch’s sacking earlier this month there have been a whole host of candidates linked to the vacant manager position at Leeds United.

Harry Redknapp is the latest manager to be linked to the job despite retiring in 2017.

Reports on Thursday night claimed that the 75-year-old offered his services to the Leeds United hierarchy but the former Tottenham Hotspur and West Ham United manager has since rubbished those claims.

“I would do it – but it coincides with Cheltenham week! I can’t miss Cheltenham. I’m up there on the Thursday,” Redknapp told talkSPORT on Friday morning.

“I don’t know where the link came from! Someone rang me yesterday and I said: ‘What are you talking about? It’s not April [Fools] is it?’

“I would do it, I love it. I wouldn’t say no anywhere. But I would never get the Leeds job. Not a chance!

“Bonus for keeping them up, that’s the move!”

Leeds United announced on Tuesday that “Michael Skubala will continue to lead the men’s first team for the club’s upcoming fixtures“.

The Yorkshire club face relegation rivals Everton on Saturday at Goodison Park before hosting Southampton the following weekend at Elland Road.

Leeds currently sit one point above the relegation zone.
