Redknapp keen to stay manager at Portsmouth

The 61-year-old, who signed a new three-and-a-half-year deal with the club last year, insists he is enjoying his football more than ever.

Portsmouth are due to move to their new ground in 2011 when Redknapp's current deal expires, but the wily manager admits he dreams of still being in charge when they do leave Fratton Park.

"I'm not going anywhere, and I can't see me going anywhere for a long time," Redknapp told The News.

"Hopefully, I will be here still when the new stadium is built.

"The only way I won't be is if I'm not alive in 2011!

"I'm still enjoying football as much as I've ever done and can't see me going anywhere, to be honest.

"If I wasn't involved in football, I'd just be sitting around at home getting under my wife's feet.

"You never know what can happen in this game, but I'm happy here.

"I would love to be there when we play our first game at the new ground."
