Jamie Redknapp says his former Liverpool teammate Sami Hyypia can become manager of a big club in Europe.
The ex-Finland international coached Bayer Leverkusen to their third victory of the Bundesliga season on the weekend, extending their winning streak to nine matches stretching back from last season, and Redknapp feels his results are now beginning to stack up very well.
“Sami Hyypia played 464 games in a decade at Liverpool and was one of my favourite team-mates. I didn’t see him becoming a manager but he has made a spectacular start to his time in charge of Bayer Leverkusen,” Redknapp wrote in his column for the Daily Mail.
“On Saturday they beat Borussia Monchengladbach (4-2) to record his ninth successive win, a run which started at the end of last season. They are joint top after three games with Champions League finalists Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich.
“It wouldn’t surprise me if he ends up in a big job in England before his time in the dug-out is up. He always loved being over here.”
