Redknapp has no thoughts of retiring
Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp turned 65 yesterday, but has no plans to quit football and pick up his bus pass just yet.
Redknapp is enjoying the most successful part of his 29-year management career, having transformed Spurs from relegation candidates to Premier League title challengers since joining in October 2008.
He indicated yesterday that he is determined to prolong his career past 70, just like the man who will face him in the opposing dugout at White Hart Lane tomorrow, Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson.
"I don't think about packing up," Redknapp said when asked if he could see himself managing past 70. "Everyone is different. Alex is 70 but he doesn't seem 70.
"I might look 65 but I certainly don't feel it. I don't know what I would do with my time if I retired. I've got no hobbies really. I only have a game of golf every now and again. That's it.
"It's not like I would be retiring from a coal face or anything. You get to go to all these fantastic places in this job and football is in you. It's something you will miss when you don't do it. I will not be applying for my bus pass. I haven't been on a bus for years."
