QPR Manager Harry RedknapRedknapp revealed turning down offers from Egyptian giants Al Ahly and Zamalek

Former Tottenham boss, Harry Redknapp has been linked to the vacant Black Stars job.

Ghana’s senior national team is coachless after former Chelsea manager Avram Grant mutually ended their relationship following the country’s failure to annex the much wanted trophy at the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations.

A number of Coaches have been reported to have applied for the job including French manager Franck Dumas and Simon McMemmey while the Ghana FA is also keen on having Morocco boss Herve Renard or former Uganda coach Milutin Sedjrojovic.

With the door still opened for more applications before the GFA finally settles on the best, reports indicate that former QPR and Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp has shown interest in coaching the Black Stars and is ready to file in his application.

The 69-year-old’s interest comes as surprising after ignoring the overtures of Notts County in the English lower tier to remain outside coaching last month.

Just about a year ago, Redknapp revealed turning down offers from Egyptian giants Al Ahly and Zamalek before taking up the Jordan national team in a two-game deal. He was later in 2016 linked to the Nigeria job now occupied by Gernt Rohr.
