Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry
Redknapp has only 12 months remaining on his contract and on
Tuesday he urged chairman Daniel Levy to sort out his future at
the Premier League club.
"The simple situation is I have a year left on my contract
and it is up to Tottenham whether they want to extend that or
not," Redknapp told Sky Sports.
"It's not a case of me looking for security. What it's about
is that when players know they have only a year left on their
contract it doesn't work.
"You don't let players run into the last year of their
contract if you think they are any good and you don't let
managers run into the last year of their contract if you think
they are any good," he added.
Redknapp has been with the Londoners since October 2008 and
is happy with the progress Spurs have made in that time.
"Things couldn't have gone better," he said. "We've finished
fourth twice, fifth once, reached the quarter-finals of the
Champions League and played fantastic football.
"It's a good club and I enjoy being at Tottenham... [but]
it's up to the chairman. If he doesn't want to give me another
contract, it's his decision."
Although Spurs finished fourth last season, which usually
brings a place in the Champions League play-offs, they missed out
on Europe's elite competition after sixth-placed Chelsea won the
trophy. UEFA allows a maximum of four teams from any country.
