It Shouldn’t Happen to a Manager
Harry Redknapp has a new book, It Shouldn’t Happen to a Manager, is out, and it may explain his whereabouts since he left QPR in April 2015.
Redknapp took on a coaching role with the Jordan national team in March.
One of the stories, shared by the the Daily Mail, is about Man United’s trip to Fratton Park.
Say your prayers
We had a few religious players and they’d go to what they called their prayer room shortly before kick-off at Fratton Park. It was actually Kev, the kit-man’s room.
The tumble dryers would be going and it could get smelly and hot. Before one game, there were 17 of them in there, like sardines.
As I was handed the Man United team-sheet I turned to Joe Jordan and said: ‘Where’s everybody gone?’
He said: ‘They’re all in Kev’s kit-room saying their prayers.’ I looked at the team-sheet.
It said Scholes, Ferdinand, Ronaldo, Rooney, Giggs. I said: ‘I think I’d better join them.’
