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."
