Experienced boss rules out Aston Villa appointment

Redknapp can still prove useful to TottenhamAston Villa fans playing pool in The Transfer Tavern are not overly disappointed that an experienced Premier League manager is not interested in taking over at the club.

Talking to Talksport former West Ham United, Portsmouth and Tottenham Hotspur boss Harry Redknapp said he didn’t believe he would even be in the running for the club, and that they should be looking at the lower leagues for Tim Sherwood’s replacement.

Redknapp was speaking to Alan Brazil on the Talksport breakfast show when he said:

“It’s a fantastic football club but I wouldn’t see myself getting that job.┬áIt would be difficult for me now, but it’s a great job for somebody. There are managers in the lower divisions, when are they going to get a chance?”

“How are they ever going to manage at the top level unless they get their team promoted? If your managing in the Championship, the only way they are going to get to manage in the Premier League is if you take your team up.”

“There are loads and loads of lads down there who could do the job, they just need the opportunity.”

The Aston Villa fans in The Transfer Tavern are not at all convinced that looking a lower league managers is the right move for the club, and would prefer to see someone with experience handed the job.
