Harry Redknapp is one of English football’s most interesting, colourful and well-liked managers.

His coaching career has spanned four decades and has taken him from the south coast with Bournemouth to the Midlands with Birmingham City, and there have been several more clubs in-between.

In an in-depth exclusive interview with Football Whispers, the former Tottenham Hotspur boss discusses his fascinating 24-year coaching career.

He opens up on working wonders at West Ham United – where he brought through the likes of Rio Ferdinand, Joe Cole and Michael Carrick – and happily reflects on taking Portsmouth from the old Division One into the Premier League.

Redknapp also looks back on one of the big disappointments of his career, missing out on the England job in 2012.

He was the favourite for the job having led Tottenham into the Champions League knock-out stages but the FA handed the role to Roy Hodgson.

The former Hammers boss also looks back on the career of his nephew and West Ham academy graduate Frank Lampard. It was Redknapp who handed the midfielder his debut for the club and he would go on to become a Chelsea legend.
