Way invites Redknapp to Yeovil Town in an advisory role


Yeovil Town have confirmed that manager Darren Way has invited Harry Redknapp to work with the first-team in an advisory role.

After parting ways with Birmingham City last month, the experience 70-year-old, Redknapp stated: “If I could help someone somewhere, help a young manager, I’d love that.”

Redknapp went on to add: “Up the road to me, Yeovil, the young manager there, I don’t want any money for it, I’d go and do a couple of days with him, just if I could help Darren Way. He’s a smashing lad.”

Looking to take up that offer, Way contacted the former Tottenham Hotspur and Portsmouth manager.

With the Yeovil Town board’s approval granted, Redknapp will meet with Way to discuss future plans.

Speaking to the official Yeovil Town website, Way said: “Harry has been in the game a long time and is someone I highly respect for all the experience he’s gained and achievements he’s accomplished.

“I’m still starting my journey in management and feel the opportunity to bring in someone like Harry to offer advice and pass on his knowledge is a no-brainer.

“There’s no pressure or long-term commitment from either side, but I’m looking forward to having Harry at Huish Park and we welcome him to the club.”
