Portsmouth manager Harry Redknapp insists he’s staying with the South Coast club despite ongoing reports suggesting that he’s thinking of quitting.
News reports intimated that Redknapp was intent on getting out of the game and spending more time with his family after a difficult year in his personal life.
However the former West Ham boss, who guided Pompey to their first FA Cup trophy in 69 years with victory over Cardiff on Saturday, has denied he’s walking out. He said:
There’s no way I’m going to pack up. It’s never entered my mind.
I don’t know what I would do without football and there’s no way I am going to walk away from Portsmouth again. I’ve done that once and we all know what happened.
We are in Europe and I need one or two players to improve the squad.
I don’t know why people think I might be retiring. I love working here, love my job and football is all I know.
