Redknapp leaves hospital

Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp has returned home after being released from hospital following a heart procedure.

On Wednesday afternoon, Redknapp had two stents inserted to unblock coronary arteries and the club said the 64-year-old would be released within the following 48 hours. Redknapp has made good progress in his recuperation and it is understood he has been released from hospital.

It has yet to be decided whether the Tottenham manager will take charge of his team's game at Fulham on Sunday, although he was in an upbeat mood on Wednesday, declaring that he would be back at work on Friday.

Redknapp has been taking medication for his heart for over a year, but was said to be in "excellent spirits" after undergoing the procedure. Despite his optimism, previous cases indicate it is unlikely that Redknapp will be back in the dug-out to see his team play at Craven Cottage this weekend.

Sam Allardyce underwent a similar procedure to Redknapp two years ago while in charge of Blackburn, and he took two weeks to fully recover.

Assistant manager Kevin Bond, who leads the team at Rubin Kazan, joined club chairman Daniel Levy in urging the former West Ham manager not to return to work ahead of schedule if it was to endanger his long-term health.

Bond, who has also worked with Redknapp at Portsmouth and Southampton, said: "As somebody who knows him well, I would tell him not to come back if he is not ready, the same as I would do if we were only going to have a warm down on a Monday morning. I would say, 'H, you don't need to come in today'. I think that is important. He will listen on things like that so hopefully he will do the same now."

Levy said: "Knowing Harry he will want to rush back, but it's important that he only does so when he has recovered properly."
