Mandaric Turns Attention To Rednapp?

Mandaric Turns Attention To Rednapp?

Well, reports yesterday not only had Neil Warnock as our new boss but also told us all that he would take Keith Curle as his assistant manager.

Today the news is that the Sheffield United boss has turned down the advances of Portsmouth and decided to stay at Bramall Lane.

The 57 Sheffield United boss has been strongly linked to the managers job vacated by Alain Perrin and the Blades board 'reluctantly' gave him permission to talk to Milan Madaric. However Warnock has decided to continue his six year association with Utd.

Warnock explained: 'I had a chat with Milan last night and sorted it out. I think all the speculation has not done anybody any good. It was a mutual thing, my heart would not have been in it and I wished him all the best. I told the players this morning and they are delighted, especially as it's been a very difficult week. I made my mind up last night at 8pm having spoken to my wife and kids about it and they are very, very happy. Milan had offered me a super deal but it just did not feel right and that's the way I am. We decided to announce it today because I was not prepared to wait until Monday.'

Mandaric told Sky Sports News they will now turn their attention to Harry Rednapp to try to take him back to Fratton Park 'We are going to approach Southampton today and ask for permission to talk to Harry.' He will also re-approach Glasgow Rangers for the second time to ask permission to speak to McLeish. Should he be talking so publicly about who his targets are? Mandaric added: 'I respect Neil's decision and as far as I'm concerned we are still looking for the best man for the job.'
