Redknapp recently turned down a big job offer?

Redknapp recently turned down a big job offer?

The Daily Star is today quoting Harry Redknapp as saying he has turned down a bigger job than Newcastle this season... and apparently since their approach earlier in the year: 'Newcastle was a terrific job and maybe this sounds like a lack of ambition, but I didn't want to be away from my wife.

'It didn't appeal to me to be stuck up in a flat and coming back down at weekends.

'If I didn't like her I probably would have gone. Listen, I have turned down a bigger job than Newcastle this season.

'Only a few weeks ago, I said no because of similar reasons and, also, I don't want to walk away from here again.'

I think that those quotes have all come from a longer interview Redknapp gave elsewhere about his past, present and future so they have been chopped to suit specific media outlets.

It is tough to know who this 'mystery club' could be, so far be it from me to try and speculate on who it could be, or add to a 'frenzy' that might build up.

It is a strange time for this to come out, but maybe off the back of the reaction he and some of the players were given at the weekend it was possibly felt it was needed to make some people start to think again? And we certainly do need him here no matter what anyone might think - well that is what I think anyway...

Typical Harry. Love the guy but sometimes don't you wish he'd keep schtum? It's like he wants us all to tell him how much we love him; we do Harry, WE REALLY DO, but please focus on winning the cup, OK? Also, why, when he turned Newcastle down because he didn't want to move north, would another club believe they could succeed where Newcastle failed?

as said in fairness i believe that the quotes formed a larger more indepth interview he had recently given, the quotes papers give are what they want to give...

I've also heard rumours of Tottenham. Are they bigger than Newcastle? Are Man City?

But you would not have to move to Manage Spuds if you lived just off the M3. I would not say that Man City are bigger than Newcastle really, the only team I can think of is Liverpool, but Haryy at Liverpool??????????? Nah forget that thought
