Redknapp holds no grudge against Tottenham chief Levy
Saturday 29 September 2012
Harry Redknapp is not angry or bitter at being sacked by Tottenham Hotspur chief executive Daniel Levy, a close confidant has told the Independent.
Joe Jordan, a coach under Redknapp at Tottenham and Portsmouth, added that the move by Levy came as a surprise but neither he nor the former manager hold any animosity towards Levy for his decision. Jordan added that when Redknapp and Levy reached an impasse in the former’s contract negotiations, he had an inkling their future was elsewhere.
He said: “[Being sacked] was not something I expected. When I finished the season I can't say I went away thinking our future was in danger, but once the discussion regarding the extension of contracts stalled my point of view changed on it.” Jordan was sacked the day after Redknapp left the club.
Jordan added that Redknapp, who now works in the media and as an advisor to former club Bournemouth, remains hungry to be involved in football, although the Scot stressed there is nothing lined up for either Redknapp or himself.
A Scotland international forward with more than 50 caps to his name, Jordan played for the likes of Leeds United, Manchester United and Milan, spending eight years at Elland Road, three at Old Trafford and two at the San Siro.
