“She said it’s amazing that this has come up now, because that was her dream. So we’re looking to sell up, we’re putting the house on the market and we’re looking to get somewhere over there if possible.

“I’m sure, she’d love it there. I’ve told her, she’d absolutely love it… hehe!

“I’m ready to go!”

Speaking seriously, Redknapp then added: “I actually went there a few years ago with Portsmouth, we played Manchester United… but I don’t think I’ll really be going back.”

    So Harry Redknapp is finally coming out to laugh now abi !!
    He can laugh all he can… me too dey laugh too!!!

    And my laughs and the laughs of a great number of true super eagles fans are louder because we still have the ideal choice in continuity in  Rohr !!!

    Redknapp would have being like another Bora Milutinovic. 

    Redknapp is coming out to mock himself because Oga Rohr has completed the much awaiting signing !!!

    Why didn’t he come out earlier and confined that he is not interested when the news came out that he was linked to the SE job ??
    Why is this story out now that NFF has finally agreed to extend the Rohr contract ?

    If the link to the Super Eagles Job is not really of importance or doesn’t make sense to him, why is he coming out to make it a big deal?

    Yeye Dey smell for here ooo!!!

    The coaching status of the Super Eagles of Nigeria is way beyond the caliber of some old horse like Harry Redknapp !!!

    The brand of a team as soaring as that of the current Super Eagles is way beyond some coaches be you foreign or domestic …. and all kudos must go to the man behind the rise… Gernot Rohr !!! ….

    After a successful two more years from Rohr, we will have some readily and capable high quality kinsmen with proof of excellence in the job to take the team higher still !!!

    We no longer gonna accept or tolerate mediocre anymore !!! 

    Yeye Dey smell  !!!

      Prince, you dey mind am? See am, with his laugh like hyena laugh. Even if coaches have almost finished on the planet, who will look in his direction? I would rather have a local coach or an ex international tinkering the team than this laughing jackass.
      Carpenter coach sef dey laugh too. The fault is not entirely his own. If our leaders had done their jobs well throughout our history, when it comes to visa, na deny we suppose to dey deny people like this clown. I no too blame am.
