Harry Redknapp might have to work a little bit harder to prove his commitment to his new club after immediately getting their name wrong.
Australian A-league team Central Coast Mariners have appointed the 69-year-old as a football consultant, but in an embarrassing blunder, the former Portsmouth and Southampton manager reminded English fans of his affection for the South Coast by referring to his new employers on talkSport radio as the 'South Coast Mariners'.
The Aussie side were hoping his appointment would raise their profile, but it's not going to do so as long as the one-time England candidate doesn't even know their name.

He also contradicted a claim by chairman Mike Charlesworth that he would be visiting Australia twice a year, a statement he denies because "it's a long way."
'Thirty-odd hours on a plane. I came home the other week and it took me a week to recover", he said, as per the Daily Mail.
Redknapp is teaming up with former Pompey chief executive Peter Storrie, who is the Mariners' vice-chairman.
Since QPR relieved him of his duties in 2015, Redknapp has appeared intent on embarking on a world tour, most recently taking charge of the Jordan national side for two games.
He has also had roles closer to home, advising Derby County until the end of the current season, and working as a director for south-coast minnows Wimborne Town.
The Mariners will surely be hoping he can bring decades of football experience with him - and maybe a willingness to learn some Australian geography.
