Harry urges son Jamie to join Pompey staff

Harry Redknapp has pleaded with son Jamie to join his coaching staff at Portsmouth.

The Pompey manager, who has agreed a new three-year contract to stay with the south-coast club after rescuing them from the threat of relegation, believes his former England international son would make a top-class coach.

Jamie, who played for Liverpool and Tottenham before retiring last year due to persistent injury problems, is working as a TV pundit and newspaper columnist.

In an interview he conducts with his 59-year-old father in the Daily Mail, Harry said: 'Milan (Mandaric) would like you to come to the club, and so would Mr Gaydamak.'

Mandaric and Alexandre Gaydamak are co-owners at Fratton Park and have trusted Redknapp senior to take the job on a longer-term basis after returning for a second spell at the club and salvaging what, in December, looked almost a lost cause.

Harry added: 'What they want is for me to have a couple of years and then groom someone to take over.

'You'd be great. I'm not saying you are coming. I'm just saying I'd like you to. I don't want to stand on the touchline forever.'

Jamie, 33, argued that his father's job appeared 'too much like hard work' and may refuse the invitation.

He explained: 'I've told him - and I tell him again - I'm happy talking football on Sky.'
