‘That’s when the problems start!’ Harry Redknapp speaks out on arguments with wife Sandra

'That's when the problems start!' Harry Redknapp speaks out on arguments with wife Sandra

Former I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! winner Harry Redknapp, 74, has addressed the root of his “bickering” with his wife of more than 50 years, Sandra, 74. Speaking to Jeremy VIne, the former Tottenham Hotspur manager shared that he and his spouse often disagree over what to watch on TV, which can lead to the football expert potentially going hungry.

Asking the former sportsman about the secret to a happy marriage, Jeremy asked Harry on his Channel 5 show: “Do you and Sandra ever bicker about what to watch?”

Without hesitating, the former football manager replied: “Absolutely – well, I’ll be honest, we have got two televisions, but we have dinner in the kitchen where one of our TVs is and so when we sit down and have dinner that is when the problems start.”

He went on to explain that his and Sandra’s differing tastes in programmes often cause “problems” around the table.

“I’ll be watching the football, Sandra will be halfway through the soaps and that’s when the problems start,” he said.

Harry even admitted that if he didn’t watch what he said, he could go without dinner following a disagreement.

He explained: “Dinner could end up in the dustbin if I’m not careful.”

Revealing that Sandra is a huge fan of the goings-on in Albert Square, the former football manager addressed his recent cameo role in popular BBC soap EastEnders.

“It was great fun, I have followed it, Sandra watches it regularly and I watch it in bits and pieces over the years.

Unfortunately, she had injured her foot and was bleeding heavily, so much so it stained the road.

The mother-of-two was rushed to hospital where she underwent surgery on her foot following the traumatic incident.

Speaking out about how he made amends with his wife after the freak accident, Harry told the podcast host the one simple thing he did, which proved to be a “shock” to his wife.

He said: “I took her a cup of tea up in bed.

“It was a shock to her, it was the biggest shock she could have.”

The star went on to reveal that getting up before Sandra was no easy feat, as she wakes up at the crack of dawn every day.

He continued: “It’s very hard to take Sandra a cup of tea in bed, she gets up at 6am every morning, I don’t really want to be getting up at half past five.

“Getting up before my wife is not easy,” he added.

“But he really gets on with Frida and she has been very understanding about him juggling fatherhood and his successful TV career.

“He likes that she’s also a parent so fully appreciates the balance, she is also keen on her fitness and loves spending time at home.”

Louise previously expressed her regret at ending her marriage to Jamie so quickly.

She revealed to You! magazine: “I should have paused and thought about other people and had just a bit more time to work out why I felt I couldn’t do it anymore.

“I wish I’d tried. I want to say to anyone thinking of running: Just slow down. Don’t run.

“Because once you run too fast, you can’t make up the ground you’ve lost.”

Jamie Redknapp debates 8 potential candidates for next Tottenham manager

Author: [email protected] (Darren Wells)
This post originally appeared on Mirror – Football

Jamie Redknapp has run the rule over eight prospective candidates to succeed Jose Mourinho as permanent Tottenham boss in the summer.

Ryan Mason is filling the role on an interim basis but is not expected to land the gig full-time, despite leading the team in Sunday’s 1-0 Carabao Cup final defeat to Manchester City.

Various names have been thrown into the proverbial hat since Mourinho’s sacking on Monday, though Redknapp has questioned the suitability of the bookies’ favourites.

Ex-Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri is currently leading the odds to be appointed by Daniel Levy, but Redknapp was uncertain on the Italian as he stressed how important this decision was for Tottenham’s future.

Speaking to Sky Sports, Redknapp said: “They need to make sure they get the next one right in charge, there’s a lot of pressure now on the board to get it right because they’ve made decisions that haven’t worked out.

“It didn’t work out with Jose Mourinho, they hired a manager that sort of went away from the Spurs way of playing in terms of the style and the Spurs fans didn’t like it.

“Now, the next manager coming in has got to be the right one, they’ve got to get this right otherwise the pressure will really grow.”

The name on everyone’s lips has been Red Bull Leipzig boss Julian Nagelsmann, but the 33-year-old is in the frame to take up the reins at Bayern Munich when Hansi Flick leaves his post at the end of the campaign to manage the German national team.

Nagelsmann is reported to have already entered talks with Bayern over the role, leaving slim pickings for Spurs to choose from, with Wolves‘ boss Nuno Espirito Santo, Southampton’s Ralph Hasenhuttl and former Tottenham star turned Fulham manager Scott Parker all under consideration.

“You look at the odds here,” Redknapp said. “Sarri, that will not excite the Spurs fans one bit, not one bit.

“If you look at Nagelsmann, Hansi Flick is going to take the Germany job it looks like, so you’d imagine Nagelsmann will go to Bayern.

“Santo, does that excite me? Not sure. Scott Parker, it looks like he might be going down with Fulham, but he worked at Spurs for a while and played good football, so Daniel Levy might like some of that.

“Ryan Mason at 10/1, you’re not backing him, [Brighton’s] Graham Potter, Rafa [Benitez], no.

“Brendan Rodgers is a manager who Daniel Levy tried to get a few years back but would you leave Leicester right now, where you’ve really established something? It’s a really big club, but so is Tottenham. I don’t know whether it would interest Brendan.”

Speaking after Tottenham’s cup final defeat, Mason gave an insight into how he wants the team to play for at least the remainder of the season while he is at the helm.

“I think City are probably four or five years ahead of us,” Mason said. “In terms of they have had a manager for such a long time and they have worked a certain way for such a long time.

“Going forward, my idea and I am sure everyone’s idea at Tottenham, is to be brave and try to dominate games like they do. It is a process. It takes time.

“The fact that the players believed in the way we wanted to approach the game, that says a lot and tells me they want to work this way.

“Obviously going forward more confidence on the ball, more arrogance, but we have only worked this way for the best part of a week.”

Daniel Levy has 'already done a deal' with next Tottenham manager claims Harry Redknapp

The 74-year-old, who led Spurs between 2008 and 2012 feels it is too soon for him to be a permanent candidate and the one thing he knows for sure is that Levy will already have his next target all but tied down.

“Tottenham have already got somebody,” he said. “They will have done a deal with somebody already. I know how they work.

“When I went, they had already spoken to two or three people. I knew that and I had heard that.

“When Mauricio Pochettino went at 9pm one evening, by 8am the next morning, Mourinho was in the training ground.

Harry Redknapp spills 'guilty confession' about golf club visit ‘I’ve not been back since’
Harry Redknapp, 74, has admitted he was left red-faced after being caught pocketing golf balls during a trip to one of the UK’s most exclusive venues, the Queenwood Golf Club. The former West Ham manager spilled on his embarrassment while discussing his recent trip to the club, which is regularly attended by celebrity members.
While chatting to his co-host Dodge and their guest, comedian Tom Davis, during the latest episode of his podcast, The Harry Redknapp Show, the star detailed his unfortunate blunder.

Harry began by joking: “Tom, I could see you turning up at Queenwood though!

“Unless you know Queenwood, I mean, it is posh!”

Tom then quipped: “Harry, I’m turning up like John Daly!”

Elsewhere, Harry shared a hilarious encounter he had with Prince Harry, 36, when he failed to correctly identify the royal, assuming he was one of his former players. 

The former Tottenham and West Ham boss was chatting to award-winning jockey Frankie Dettori on his podcast, where he recalled a “fella stretching” in front of him wearing a baseball cap.

In the clip shared to Instagram, Harry said: “And suddenly one guy stands up, and he looks up, ‘Hi Harry,’ he shouts up to me.

“I’m reading the paper. I looked at him, I went, ‘Alright mate?’ Carried on reading the paper.

“I thought, I know him from somewhere, and I’m looking, and I’m thinking, ‘Who is it? Did he use to play for me?’”

Suddenly the penny dropped for Harry when he realised it was in fact the Duke of Sussex.

Harry added in disbelief: “It was Prince Harry, right? And I’m reading a paper Frankie, and I’ve gone to him, ‘Alright mate?’

“Carried on reading the paper. Oh my God,” Harry gasped.

Harry Redknapp 'wasn't a nice guy' and personality 'was a myth' Rowan Vine raged

Harry Redknapp 'wasn't a nice guy' and personality 'was a myth' Rowan Vine raged
Redknapp is one of the country’s most loved football managers, earning acclaim for his spells leading Tottenham Hotspur into the Champion’s League, and being the last Englishman to lift the FA Cup, while in charge of Portsmouth. He earned a wealth of new fans after becoming King of the Jungle on ITV’s I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here, with viewers enchanted by his relaxed and engaging manner. The 74-year-old’s love of jam roly-poly, as well as his long marriage to wife Sandra, also proved vital in bewitching admirers back when his popularity was at its peak in 2018.
Described by some as one of the greatest managers to never lead the England national football team, Redknapp’s warmth was also felt by a number of players.

The likes of Peter Crouch and Jermaine Defoe, strikers who followed Harry to a number of clubs including Tottenham and Portsmouth, have spoken highly of his influence on and off the pitch.

Yet, according to Vine – who made 13 appearances for Portsmouth at the start of his career – Redknapp’s off-field persona was completely different to when he was on the training pitch.

Speaking to Under the Cosh podcast, the 38-year-old recalled how, when Redknapp took over the reigns of Portsmouth in 2002, he played a couple of games before being shipped out on loan to Brentford.

When asked what Redknapp was like, Vine said: “Back then, I didn’t like him.

“He wasn’t the Harry you saw on I’m A Celebrity, it wasn’t all the jam roly polys you know. It was like the old 51:10 [mobile phone] was out, and he was like, ‘Who the f**k does he think he is?'”

He claimed: “I liked Harry, and he’d say now that he likes me, because we do get on now, I’ve seen him and we’ve interlinked a few times.

“But back in the day he wasn’t a nice guy.”

Redknapp’s last job in management came during a doomed spell in 2017 when he managed Birmingham City for just 13 games.

After a long playing career, Redknapp started out as a manager at AFC Bournemouth in 1983.

But Vine’s remarks were completely different to what viewers found of Redknapp when he appeared on the popular ITV show.

TV critic Emma Bullimore told BBC Radio 5 Live after Redknapp won that he was “the favourite all the way through”.

She added: “With all of his little idiosyncrasies and little catchphrases, he was absolutely brilliant entertainment value and a very worthy winner.

“There was no game plan, there was no pretence, he was just himself. He came across as such a genuinely nice man.”
