Harry Redknapp has laughed off speculation he could have become the next coach of the Super Eagles of Nigeria

The English football manager and former Tottenham coach was rumored to have been lined up to replace Gernot Rohr, who has now signed a contract extension to remain as manager of the three-time African champions.

Addressing the claims on talkSPORT, Redknapp joked: ‘ Yeah, well I spoke to Sandra and she’s always wanted to live in Nigeria.

‘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. 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. I’m ready to go!’

The 73-year-old, who has not managed since he left Birmingham in 2017, 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.’
