Redknapp set for Spurs talks over his future
Updated Wednesday, 13th June 2012
Harry Redknapp will meet with chairman Daniel Levy on Wednesday to discuss his future as Tottenham manager, according to reports.
Redknapp has a year left to run on his current deal and has recently voiced his concern that he has not been able to pen a longer-term contract.
Reports on Wednesday claim Redknapp will meet Levy to discuss whether he still has the full backing of the Spurs hierarchy.
Redknapp guided Spurs to fourth in the Barclays Premier League last term, but was unable to secure Champions League football due to Chelsea's victory over Bayern Munich in the European Cup final last month.
Although a top-four finish was the goal at the start of the season, many Spurs fans were unhappy with the way Tottenham threw away a 10-point lead over Arsenal to end the season in fourth rather than third.
Indeed, Tottenham were primed for a title push thanks to an excellent 11-match unbeaten run towards the end of 2011, and even had a chance to move top of the table in January.
Redknapp claimed his team were capable of ending Spurs' 51-year wait for the title, but a poor run of one win in seven league matches in the latter stages of the season cost the north London club a place in the Champions League.
That run coincided with speculation that Redknapp would replace Fabio Capello as England manager after the Italian resigned in February.
Many were angered Redknapp publicly flirted with the idea of becoming Three Lions boss, but the 65-year-old insisted it had nothing to do with his team's poor run, which was followed by a humiliating 5-1 defeat to Chelsea in the FA Cup semi-final at Wembley.
