White Hart Lane boss told to rest.
Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp could face a four- or five-week layoff after undergoing minor heart surgery, he said on Sunday.
The Premier League club had initially said the 64-year-old, favourite to take over as England manager from Fabio Capello next July, would be set to return to work in two weeks following Wednesday’s operation.
“(The doctor’s) telling me I shouldn’t even think about (returning) for at least four to five weeks. I hope to be back before then,” Redknapp told Britain’s Sky Sports News.
Redknapp said he would try to stay calm in front of the television while watching Spurs visit Fulham in the Premier League later on Sunday.
Harry Redknapp will hope that his White Hart Lane side can negotiate the potentially tricky trip to Craven Cottage as Tottenham look to make it nine games unbeaten in the Premier League.
One can imagine that the 64 year old boss will find it hard to stay calm whilst watching on the box, knowing how much he would clearly love to be involved today. Get well soon Harry.
