As Chelsea look for a suitable candidate to fill their vacant manager's seat, rumor mills burst into life with Tottenham Hotspur boss Harry Redknapp receiving a lot of noise. Much of it had to do with the Englishman impressing in his debut season in the Champions League as his Spurs side reached the quarterfinals, playing engrossing football on the way, before Real Madrid brought their dream to an end.
He failed to secure a spot in the league which would have ensured Champions League football next season though and it saw his position at the club debated on. However, Redknapp revealed he hadn't been contacted by Chelsea and said he was happy at Spurs.
I've got a great job at Tottenham, he told Sky Sports News. Things are going well for me. I have had a couple of great years; it couldn't have gone better for me there.
I haven't heard anything from Chelsea that's for sure, no one has ever mentioned Chelsea to me. It's not the first I have heard of it, someone said to me today your name got mentioned on TV, well I said I've never heard nothing at all so it's all news to me.
Chelsea are believed to be keen on tempting their former temporary manager Guus Hiddink for the role, although the likes of Porto boss Andre Villas-Boas and ex-Netherlands coach Marco van Basten have been linked.
