Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp says he has no interest in replacing Andre Villas-Boas at Stamford Bridge after the Portuguese was sacked as Chelsea boss on Sunday.

Villas-Boas was little over eight months into a three-year contract with the Blues, but was relieved of his duties after a run of only three wins in 11 games and with the club facing an early Champions League exit.

Pep Guardiola and Jose Mourinho have been installed as the early favourites to replace the 34-year-old, while former Liverpool tactician Rafael Benitez has tentatively declared an interest in the position.

With Tottenham, once again, enjoying an impressive season under the stewardship of Redknapp, the 65-year-old has also seen himself linked with the vacant Chelsea role.

Redknapp, though, does not want to leave White Hart Lane for the Bridge, although insists the Chelsea job would be a 'dream' for somebody.

When asked about the possibility of succeeding Villas-Boas, Redknapp told Sky Sports: "That's all I need!

"It would be difficult; I wouldn't be able to come back to north London so I'd have to pass on that.

"But it's a dream job for somebody."

He added: "Well it's a great job for somebody that's for sure.

"It's a club you can win a championship at because the owner has spared no expense.

"He has built the most incredible training ground, they buy players at the top level, they have got top players so it is a dream job for somebody to go there and make a success of it - whoever they take.

"So many people would love that job and chance to work at a great club with the backing the manager gets there, but you've got to make a success of it. That's the rules.

"If you don't you are not going to last but if you do well the sky's the limit.

"It's a great job for somebody."
