Cherries: Redknapp in Dean Court return
HARRY Redknapp has made a sensational return to Cherries – more than 20 years after leaving Dean Court.
Redknapp, who managed Cherries between 1983 and 1992 and led the club into English football’s second tier for the only time in its history, has accepted a non-contract, advisory role at Goldsands Stadium and will travel with Paul Groves’s squad for tomorrow’s League One clash at Yeovil.
The 65-year-old former Tottenham boss has been out of work since leaving White Hart Lane in the summer and met with Cherries chairman Eddie Mitchell this morning to discuss his new position.
Mitchell confirmed part of Redknapp’s remit would involve working with boss Groves and assistant manager Shaun Brooks in an advisory capacity.
