Like Brian Clough, Harry Redknapp is known as the best manager that England never had (at the time of writing), but the motivational speaker is also known as one of the best club team managers of the English football league.
As well as managing Queens Park Rangers, Portsmouth (twice), Spurs, Bournemouth, West Ham United (winning the UEFA Intertoto Cup in 2000) and Southampton, Redknapp has played for West Ham between 1965 and 1972, Bournemouth for the next four years, Brentford and a couple of other teams. In his whole playing career, he made 276 appearances.
Redknapp is best known for his ability to turn around struggling football clubs, which is what he did when he managed Portsmouth for the second time. Close to being relegated from the Premier League when the motivational speaker joined, the club went on to reach ninth position (the highest point achieved by the club since the 1950s) and to win the FA Cup (the last time the club had been in the final was nearly 70 years previously).
Despite such success, Harry left Portsmouth to manage Tottenham Hotspur, who were bottom of the league at the time with just two points from a possible 24. He immediately moved them out of trouble so they finished eighth and he also took them to a League Cup final. In subsequent years, Spurs did even better and Redknapp once won the Premier League Manager of the Year award.
The motivational speaker can be seen regularly these days giving his opinion as a TV pundit, sometimes sitting next to his highly successful footballer and TV pundit son Jamie Redknapp.
