Redknapp rejects return to management (in League Two)

Harry Redknapp has turned down the opportunity to return to football management with League Two Notts County.

Aside from a two-game spell as Jordan boss in early 2016, Redknapp has been out of management for two years after quitting as QPR manager in February 2015.

The 69-year-old explained that he could not give 100% to the job at the time due to an imminent knee operation, and he stepped away from the post with QPR 19th in the Premier League table.

He revealed later that year that he was eyeing a return to management however, stating: “I’ll be looking to get back in next season.

“The off-season comes and then I’ll be looking to work somewhere because I love it.”

But according to the Daily Mirror, Redknapp has turned down the chance of a return at Notts County.

Alan Hardy completed his takeover of the League Two club earlier this week and approached the former Tottenham and West Ham boss over taking the job at the managerless side.

The offer was turned down however, with County expected to appoint a manager at some point this week.
