Tottenham fires manager Redknapp


LONDON — Harry Redknapp is no longer Tottenham manager following his failure to repeat his feat of leading the team into the Champions League, according to British media reports.

BBC and Sky said late Wednesday that Redknapp has left after nearly four seasons in charge and with a year left on his contract.

The decision would cap a difficult few months for the 65-year-old Englishman, in which he missed out on the England coaching job and Spurs failed to reach Europe's top club event despite holding a 10-point lead over their nearest rival at one stage of the Premier League season.

Redknapp joined Tottenham in October 2008 with the team hovering above the relegation zone. By May 2010, Spurs had qualified for the Champions League for the first time.
