Born in the East End, Harry’s Cockney wit lightens the sometimes too serious world of the Premier League; he is one of the most popular characters in British football. Playing for West Ham Harry played a right-winger before starting a managerial career with Bournemouth in 1983.
Redknapp then went on to manage the Hammers, Portsmouth (twice) and Southampton, capturing the FA Cup with Pompey in 2008. Later on, in 2008 Tottenham bought Redknapp from Portsmouth for a £5 million transfer fee where he has become idolized by the fans and hugely respected by his peers.
With his deep knowledge of football tactics, Harry's after-dinner speeches are full of amazing stories from his 45 years in the game, and he pulls no punches in question-and-answer sessions.
