HARRY REDKNAPP TO MANAGE JORDAN
Mar 16, 2016
The Jordan Football Association has played a master stroke in securing the services of veteran English manager Harry Redknapp for the crucial upcoming World Cup/Asian Cup qualifiers against Bangladesh and Australia.
The former Tottenham Hotspur, QPR and West Ham manager said he is helping out as a favour to HRH Prince Ali Bin Al Hussein, and will fly to Jordan on Sunday, just four days after starting a new consultancy role with Derby County in the English League.
Jordan must beat Bangladesh in Amman on March 24 and then pull of a big shock by winning in Australia five days later to win Group B.
The matches are double headers, the group winner goes through to the next phase of 2018 Russia World Cup qualifiers while the top two progress to the next stage of the Asian Cup being held in the UAE next year.
