Harry Redknapp quits Southampton

Harry Redknapp
Southampton manager Harry Redknapp has quit his job at the club, and is hoping to rejoin his old team, Portsmouth.

Redknapp quit Portsmouth almost exactly a year ago, but recently asked Saints to let him meet club bosses to discuss going back to Pompey.

He told the BBC: "I felt once I told Southampton chairman Rupert Lowe I wanted to speak to Portsmouth I had burned my bridges at Southampton.

"Their people wouldn't want me back at the club. I understand that."

He added that he wasn't sure what he would do if he didn't go to Portsmouth: "If they can't do a deal with Portsmouth then I'm left in limbo and I will have to accept that.

"It means I will have to walk my dogs every day, which I suppose I'll have to do."
