Redknapp has no intention of walking away from Tottenham
Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp has rejected rumours that he will resign from White Hart Lane at the end of the season but added that he was in no rush to renew his contract with the club, ESPN has reported.
Redknapp was widely expected to be named the new England manager but the position instead went to West Bromwich Albion manager Roy Hodgson, who was confirmed in the role earlier this week. Redknapp has since said that he is fully committed to the Spurs cause, but would not be pressing chairman Daniel Levy for a new contract.
He added: “I’ve got no thoughts with moving anywhere else. I don’t feel any different now to a few years ago. I don’t feel tired and I’ve got a good job here. But I don’t want to make it seem like I am chasing Daniel, asking him to give me a new contract. I’m not.”
Redknapp was appointed Tottenham manager in October 2008, replacing Juande Ramos after Spurs endured a difficult start to the season. In his three-and-a-half years in North London Redknapp has taken Spurs to the 2009 League Cup final and into the Champions League for the first time in 2010-11, where the club eventually reached the quarter-finals before being eliminated by Real Madrid.
