He is back! Former Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp is back in management and this time, he has taken over at Birmingham City. Harry, who managed Tottenham from 2008 to 2012 last managed Jordan national team for 15 days in 2016, from March 15 to March 29. Since then, Redknapp was not involved in management and now this is set to change, with the former England manager taking over at Birmingham.
Redknapp’s time at White Hart Lane was quite memorable as he managed to guide the club to Champions League qualification. He built a really capable squad that was so close to challenging the top clubs in England back then.
Despite failing to win a trophy with Tottenham, the work he did at the Lane is still considered as commendable in the world of football and the fans still hold him dear. The 70-year old took Tottenham to Champions League quarterfinals once and finished in the top-4 twice.
Nevertheless, the world of Twitter was shocked at Redknapp’s return to management and a lot of Tottenham fans took social media to express their view on this.
Here, we have managed to gather few tweets.

Good move all round the Redknapp/Birmingham set up. If he keeps them up a nice fat bonus & a hero. Nothing to lose for either party

Is this one of those times where the classist nerds try to pretend like Harry Redknapp isn’t capable of doing a decent job at Birmingham?
