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.
“It’s a fantastic football club but I wouldn’t see myself getting that job. It 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.
