Harry Redknapp has claimed he wishes he’d have got a chance to manage Liverpool.
The Englishman last took charge of a team nearly two years ago – but was sacked by Birmingham in September 2017 and hasn’t got a job since.
As a result, it looks like his managerial career is over, but at 72, Redknapp has done well at (almost) the very top level for almost 30 years.
Redknapp wants us to win the title, but predominantly because he’s stuck a large amount of money on it!
“If I had one club I’d love to have managed it would have been Liverpool,” Redknapp told the Daily Mail. “I loved them.
“I can see them winning the league this year. Give them the title and give it to them now.
“I’ve had a big bet and I think the bookmakers should pay me out!”
With an eight-point lead, Liverpool are favourites for the Premier League title – but we were in the same position last term and lost out to a rampant Manchester City who have the ability to go on another incredible winning run.
As a result, we have to maintain the pace at the top of the table and target three points every weekend.
Our next fixture is away to Manchester United on October 20, before we host Spurs at Anfield a week later.
