Redknapp loyal to Spurs cause

Published Add your comment

Harry Redknapp insists he is "loyal to Spurs" and would be keen to extend his contract with Tottenham, despite reports linking him with the vacant manager's job at Liverpool.

Redknapp has been mooted as a successor to Rafael Benitez, who left Liverpool last week, after guiding Spurs to fourth place in the Barclays Premier League last season and a coveted qualifying place for the Champions League.

"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," the 63-year-old told 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."
