Liverpool are trailing Spurs’ manager Harry Redknapp as a successor to Rafa Benitez  according to football365.com. After guiding Spurs to fourth place in the Premier League last season, Redknapp is seen as an ideal candidate to replace Rafa. Despite increasing rumours, Spurs’s boss insists he would not leave Tottenham.

Here is Redknapp’s statement to ESPN Soccernet:

I am not being presumptuous turning down Liverpool, because I haven’t been offered the job and haven’t spoken to anyone about it.

There is no need, as I have one year left on my contract at Tottenham and I am not thinking about anything other than being at White Hart Lane next season.

I can tell you that I have not been offered a new contract, but that doesn’t mean I am looking to move on – far from it.

I am loyal to Spurs, I want to stay at Spurs and I have a contract with Spurs, and I’d be happy to sign a new contract at Spurs if I was offered one, but in any case I have one year on my contract.

Would you like Harry Redknapp to be Liverpool’s next manager?

    Harry will never leave the south coast ,he’s said so ,so many times (remember newcastle) and yet silly rumours about him still persist ,it’s a non-story so liverpool fans should ignore this and hope that the club find the right man otherwise top4 will just be dream for many,many years ,there can be no short term solution (hodgson) the club will need continued stability and progress to recover their position ,that means a manager who can come in and galvanise the team straight away whilst also having to find virtually a whole new team of replacements on a restricted budget , who ever comes in will be taking on a project that may take five years to see liverpool lifting the prem crown ,if you get the right man ,even as a spurs fan I have to say HICKS AND GILLET OUT becuase these kind of owners are a danger to prem as a whole
