Redknapp Loudly Unconfident at Task Ahead
Football Boglin (H)arry Redknapp, has today spoken to the press gathered outside of Loftus Road, following his appointment as Q.P.R. manager.
Swiftly named as the successor to Mark Hughes, following the Welshman’s dismissal yesterday, Redknapp will begin overseeing first team duties immediately.
“Yeah you know, it’s a triffic club. I remember coming here as a boy, sitting in the terraces. Then later on playing against the likes of Rodney Marsh and Gerry Francis, two top, top players. It’s always been a top club. Triffic.”
Speculation that Redknapp was in line for the vacancy mounted after numerous sightings of a Ranger Rover circling the ground, complete with a pink sack of pool balls being hung from the driver’s side window, was later identified as the wily manager.
Redknapp has been unemployed since the end of last season following his dismissal from Tottenham.
“Well you know, when I came in at Spurs they had two points from eight games, I came in and next thing we qualified for the Champions League.
Obviously the end of last season didn’t go to plan, they lost a lot of ground after opening up a big gap, but when the players aren’t giving it their all, there is very little a manager can do.”
Redknapp is particularly coy regarding what the future holds for him with the Hoops.
“Well it’s a big job, we got the players here to make something happen, but the fans are idiots if they expect too much. They could get relegated but we could win the league, y’know that’s football now. It’s up to me to guide them to success but it’s down to them if they don’t.
“It’s most important that the players start enjoying their football again. They’re all professionals, they know how the game is played, no need for chalk boards or any of that, just get out there and show us you’ve got the minerals.”
