Tottenham boss Harry Rednapp has insisted he is ‘loyal to Spurs’ in the wake of increasing speculation linking the the 63-year-old to the vacant manager’s job at Liverpool.
Redknapp has been receiving a multitude of plaudits of late after guiding Spurs to a fourth place finish in the Premier League last term, thus securing a place in next season’s Champions League – and has recently emerged as one of the favourites to succeed Rafa Benitez at the Anfield helm.
However, the veteran schemer told Soccernet that he has no intention of leaving White Hart Lane in the near future;
“I am not being presumptuous turning down Liverpool, because I haven’t been offered the job and haven’t spoken to anyone about it.
There is no need, as I have one year left on my contract at Tottenham and I am not thinking about anything other than being at White Hart Lane next season.
I can tell you that I have not been offered a new contract, but that doesn’t mean I am looking to move on – far from it.
I am loyal to Spurs, I want to stay at Spurs and I have a contract with Spurs, and I’d be happy to sign a new contract at Spurs if I was offered one, but in any case I have one year on my contract.”
Hmmm. I may be a little wide of the mark here, but it sounds to me like Old ‘Arry might be angling for a new contract. What do you reckon?
