Over the weekend many of you might have noticed and article that Jamie Redknapp wrote about his dad Harry Redknapp for the Daily Mail?
I had not until linvoyforengland brought it to our attention in the forum - here.
Anyway, it makes very good reading and although I held Jamie Redknapp in quite high regard before this, I held him in an even higher regard having read it through, it really was a cracking article.
I have always been quite vocal on the thought that I believe he could one day take up a role on the coaching team with Pompey, clearly I am delighted with the work that Tony Adams is doing, but it is no secret that he is looking for a challenge of his own, so this could prove his last season with us - although at the same time if he decides to stay for 'one more year' this would not surprise me...
Jamie Redknapp has always said that he is happy with his work in the media - so he should be as he knows what he is talking about and talks a good and honest talk, which in fairness he did even when he was still a player. But he has also said on more than one occasion that he would like to get into the coaching or management side of the game at some point.
Part of Harry Redknapp's role in his new contract is to find and groom his replacement, as much as Adams would be a cracking replacement and I would want this, he is not going to wait another 3 or 4 years is he so I do think that Jamie Redknapp could be the fella that he does groom to take over...
They have worked together as manager and player at two clubs, so a father and son management double act at Pompey is not something that might sound as unrealistic as it might have, there would be no 'back stabbing' as they are family, both have a great knowledge of the game and I do feel that Jamie Redknapp could be a fantastic manager.
The thing that made it more likely for me was the way he rounded off his article: 'I might even end up working with my dad one day. I'd like that, but, right now, he seems to be doing pretty well by himself. Just don't ask me to talk about it again'...
PLAY UP POMPEY!
