Ex-Tottenham coach Jordan: Redknapp eager for management return

Tottenham coach Joe Jordan says Harry Redknapp is eager to jump back into management.

Jordan, who was first-team coach at Tottenham until he and Redknapp were ­dismissed at the beginning of summer, remains mystified about their shock departure.

He said: "It was not something Harry or I expected. We never thought our future was in danger.

"But Harry's contract was terminated and I got word the next day that had happened to myself. We didn't see it coming.

"We had finished fourth at the end of the season and, if Chelsea hadn't won the Champions League, we'd have been in the tournament again.

"Our season was hardly a failure. But I don't think Harry holds a grudge. He has been long enough in the game to know that was it. You move on.

"If he got another job he certainly wouldn't feel he had to make a point when he faced Tottenham.

"His record stands for itself."
