Career Summary

With over 30 years of experience as a manager and spells at five different clubs in the Barclays Premier League, Harry Redknapp is one of the most established bosses to have worked in the top flight.

After taking charge of Bournemouth in 1983 and taking them as high as the second tier of English football in nine years with the South Coast club, Redknapp landed his first Premier League job as manager of West Ham United in 1994.

Redknapp steered the Hammers to mid-table finishes and Premier League safety in his first few years in charge before guiding them to a fifth place finish in the 1998/99 campaign, their highest position to date in the Premier League.

After parting company with the club, Redknapp took charge of Portsmouth in the Championship and led them to promotion to the top flight in 2003. He steered Pompey to 13th in their first season in the Premier League before leaving the club in 2004.

Redknapp took charge of local rivals Southampton in December 2004, but couldn’t prevent the Saints from dropping to the Championship after finishing 20th on a dramatic final day of the season.

He then returned to Portsmouth in December 2005 and managed to avoid relegation despite the club being eight points adrift of safety with ten matches left. Top half finishes followed in the 2006/07 and 2007/08 campaigns and he won the FA Cup with Pompey in 2008.

In October the same year, Redknapp took charge of Tottenham Hotspur. The club were in the relegation zone upon his arrival and he steered them to a mid-table finish before securing Champions League qualification in the 2009/10 campaign with fourth spot in the league. He won the Premier League’s Manager of the Year award as a result.

Spurs finished fifth and fourth in his next two seasons as manager, before he was relieved of his duties in June 2012. Redknapp took charge of his fifth Premier League club when Queens Park Rangers came calling in November 2012, but he couldn’t prevent the Loftus Road club from being relegated in the 2012/13 campaign.

Vastly experienced manager Redknapp has won eight Manager of the Month awards during a lengthy career in the top flight.
