Harry Redknapp open to managing Leeds United if club asks him

Harry Redknapp is willing to become Leeds United manager if they want him, according to the Daily Mirror.

The 75-year-old last managed in 2017 when he was at Birmingham City. Leeds have struggled to appoint a permanent head coach since parting ways with Jesse Marsch on February 6.

Redknapp is open to a short-term deal that will see him take charge of the Whites until the end of the term.

The veteran manager has loads of experience and did keep Portsmouth up in 2005-06. They lost only two of their last 10 Premier League games to miraculously escape the drop.

Leeds could do with such an impact after finding themselves neck-deep in a relegation battle.

The Elland Road club are 17th in the Premier League after 22 games, with only a point between them and the danger zone.

Redknapp brings 34 years of managerial experience and expertise to the table. However, whether the west Yorkshire club will take up his offer remains to be seen.

Leeds have kept Michael Skubala in interim charge and he will oversee their upcoming games against Everton and Southampton.

The Whites’ under-21s head coach was in charge of both games against Manchester United.

They picked up a point but will fancy their chances in the next two six-pointers.

Leeds were rejected by Rayo Vallecano’s Andoni Iraola, Feyenoord’s Arne Slot and West Bromwich Albion’s Carlos Corberan. The La Liga boss is out of contract in the summer and they could swoop for him.

Leeds are still looking for a manager, and taking a punt on Redknapp could do them a world of good.
