DO WOT? Ex-Spurs boss Redknapp says he's joining 'South' Coast Mariners

Former Tottenham and West Ham boss Harry Redknapp is happy to take a job in Australia - though isn't sure which club he's joined!

Redknapp made an embarrassing slip in referring to the Australian club he is joining by the wrong name.

Asked the name of his new club on talkSPORT, he replied: “It's the South Coast Mariners.

“I met the owner, he's a great guy, an English guy. Peter Storrie's involved and they've got an English coach as well.

“They asked me if I would do a bit as an advisor."

Redknapp, who recently oversaw Jordan's 5-1 thrashing by Australia in a World Cup qualifier, added: “No, no, I won't be going. It's a long way.

“Thirty-odd hours on a plane. I came home the other week and it took me a week to recover.

“It's a long way but it's a fantastic country when you get there."
