Redknapp has been given the task of staving off relegation at Loftus Road and it‚Äôs a challenge that Jol is not unfamiliar with, having prospered during a similar situation in his time in the Netherlands.
‚ÄúI think it‚Äôs always a tough job,‚ÄĚ he said when asked about the difficulties of taking over at a struggling side. ‚ÄúAt my second club [RKC Waalwijk], they had three points at the end of November and that was the first time in history that a club had that amount of points and still managed to stay in the league.
‚ÄúThe year after, we were fourth with two other clubs, so I think Harry can do a similar job. He‚Äôs proved in the past that he‚Äôs a very good manager, a fantastic manager. But it‚Äôs a big challenge.‚ÄĚ
