Breaking news has just reached us here at Sky Sports News, Harry Redknapp has left Queens Park Rangers on mutual consent.
News comes to as a complete shock as Rangers prepare for the upcoming season since their promotion back into the Premier League. Redknapp becomes the first manager to leave his post this season and surely will not be the last.
Reasons are yet to be confirmed for Redknapp’s departure, but early speculation suggests that Harry Redknapp is on the verge of announcing his retirement from management and is too join Sky Sports. A massive deal that will see him team up with Sky Sport’s Jim White for transfer window specials.
Harry did not even get the chance to take the first training session of the season, as the players reported for training earlier this week, Redknapp and owner Tony Fernandes were in constant meetings over his job and future.
Contenders to take over from Harry Redknapp are short, this is because Tony Fernandes confirmed to Sky Sports earlier today that a replacement had already been identified. He did not give any names away. This is what we managed to get out of Harry, when we caught up with him.
“It has come out of nowhere really for me. I know for one thing, Sandra will be delighted! Look, the club is in great hands. The new manager will be fine, he’s a young lad. He knows the game very very well. Tony will back him like he always did with me and with the right signings, I have no worries about them staying in the division and being competitive.”
Rangers are expected to announce the new manager by the end of the week. Early front runners are Glenn Hoddle and Les Ferdinand, there history with the club could serve them well whilst managing the side.
As you would have been able to tell by now this is going to be my second story on FM 15. This does mean I will be attempting to carry out and continue to pursue two stories at once. My ‘Everton – A club with Ambition’ story has been a great success for me on a personal note. I want to continue this with QPR, I have some great memories with this club and hope to create many more. Thank you for reading, stick around for more updates and lets see what we can do.
