REDKNAPP INSIST TOTTENHAM WOULD HAVE SACKED HIM EVEN IF THEY QUALIFIED FOR THE CHAMPIONS LEAGUE


Harry Redknapp insists Tottenham would still have shown him the door even if he had managed to steer the north London club into the Champions League.

The 65-year-old, who has vowed to take another job after being sacked by Spurs on Wednesday night, says his future at the club has already been decided.

Tottenham finished fourth but were foiled in the European ambitions by Chelsea's stunning defeat of Bayern Munich in the 2011-12 final

 
'Even if we had finished fourth, the chairman would have gone down the same road. But that is football'' Redknapp told BBC Radio Five Live.
'I had four great years at Spurs. All you can do is leave the club in a better state than you found it and I did that, for sure.

'I abide by their decision and don't hold grudges. That is life, we all move on.'

Where a new role would emerge remains to be seen with the only vacant post in the Premier League at Swansea at the moment and it is unlikely Redknapp would be tempted by the role.

Should David Moyes be offered the Tottenham job, Redknapp may emerge as a contender for a unique swap.

However, he may feel it is the right time to take a lucrative post abroad - particularly in the Middle East.

The are a number of rich sides in the United Arab Emirates and Qatar that would be interested in offering Redknapp a job.

Redknapp explained his sacking was not finance related, instead it was based on the club's desire for a change.
