The morning after Roberto Di Matteo guided Chelsea to the greatest night in their history the morning papers are suggesting he is set for the axe as Roman Abramovich turns to Tottenham’s Harry Redknapp to lead the Chelsea revolution.
They suggest Redknapp would seize the opportunity at a new challenge after guiding Spurs from Premier League mid-tablers to the Champions League (had it not been for Chelsea’s win last night).
Redknapp missed out on the England job and rumours are strife about his rocky relationship with Spurs chairman Daniel Levy.
Would Redknapp be good for Chelsea? In my opinion he would not.
Redknapp has done a fabulous job at Spurs but has always fell short in the Premier League title race and cup competitions and success at Chelsea is paramount.
Roberto Di Matteo surely deserves a crack at the job after his heroics during his interim spell as manager. Di Matteo has proved he can get the best out of the players, he’s brought a togetherness and he is Chelsea through and through.
Redknapp is a great man manager but tactically he is not up there with the greats. In order to win trophies at the highest level on a consistent basis a manager must have a tactical know-how and this is where Redknapp has fell short this season.
I don’t think Redknapp has the experience at the highest level to succeed at Chelsea and some may say neither does Di Matteo but what RDM does have is a knowledge, understanding and love for the club.
I feel we need RDM or failing that Capello to take charge next season and I don’t think this move would be right for the club or for Harry Redknapp.
