Harry Redknapp insists he would be happy to finish his career with the club. Redknapp, 63, has taken Spurs from a struggling Premier League psosition in 2008 to the last 16 of the Champions League, and also now considered possible title contenders.
He has repeatedly been touted as the successor to current England coach Fabio Capello, who will step down from the post in 2012.
But when asked if he would like to bring his managerial career to a close at White Hart Lane, Redknapp said:
“Of course I would. For sure, only I don’t think that far ahead.
“In this game you just never know. Yeah, it’s gone great but I was enjoying my life before and out of the blue suddenly you get a phone call (from Tottenham).
“It never entered my mind that I would leave Portsmouth, I was enjoying it there and suddenly you get an offer to come here.
“Whoever thought Sam (Allardyce) would get the sack. It can turn so quickly, half a dozen games and suddenly you don’t know what you’re doing.
“You go from being the cleverest person in the world to being the biggest idiot in the world. That’s how this game works unfortunately.”
And Redknapp claims he is not reading much into the speculation he will be the next manager of teh national team. He added:
“It’s flavour of the month this game. Roy Hodgson was favourite at the start of the year.
“Alan Curbishley nearly had it last time, now he can’t get a job in the Premier League. Who knows what happens in 18 months time?”
