​Redknapp in-frame for NK Olimpija Ljubljana vacancy

Slovenian league leaders NK Olimpija Ljubljana are trying to tempt Harry Redknapp to become their next head coach.

The Slovenian PrvaLiga club were taken over by the former Portsmouth, Leicester and Sheffield Wednesday owner Milan Mandaric in the summer and knows the former Tottenham boss from his Pompey days.

Olimpija director Ranko Stojic hopes to have a new manager in place in the coming days and admits there is a chance the 68-year-old could coach at the Stozice Stadium.

"In your newspapers you have already mentioned that Olimpija could get Harry Redknapp, and there are some possibilities for this scenario to really materialise," he told Slovenian newspaper Ekipa.

"Of course, there is no need to say that this is mainly due to the relationship that he has with our president - their relationship is our greatest asset.

"Redknapp also has an offer from the Arab world, but if he doesn't go there he might come to us."
