What a year! Harry Redknapp's first interview since leaving Spurs, on heart surgery, THAT court case, the England saga and leaving a club he loved
Glory days: Redknapp won the FA Cup while in charge of Portsmouth

‘It was nice that people wanted me to do the job, but it didn’t happen and that’s that. I rang Roy and wished him well. I rang him after the first game at the Euros and said well done, too. He’s a lovely guy and I was pleased for him.

‘Look, I don’t live my life feeling bitter about anything. I’ve been so lucky. I’ve had such a great life. I’ve got a fantastic family. I’ve been married for 44 years — I’ve got the most fantastic marriage. You see people with real problems. I’ve been lucky.’

He insists he is not bitter about his dismissal from Tottenham either, even if he does not seem to have much time for the man who has succeeded him. There is no direct criticism of Andre Villas-Boas, but his view of a certain breed of modern, intellectual football manager is not terribly complimentary.

‘These days you’re getting 70-page dossiers on this and that,’ he says. ‘Bulls**t can baffle brains at times.’
