Harry Redknapp does not go to matches anymore in case he is linked with managerial jobs at clubs.

Harry Redknapp has revealed that he does not go to games anymore in case he is linked with managerial jobs at football clubs.

The 65-year-old is currently out of football management after his departure from Tottenham Hotspur in June.

"It is difficult you know [to be out of management] but at the moment I will be honest with you mate, I quite enjoyed the break in a way, it hasn't been a problem for me," Redknapp told Ian Wright on Absolute Radio.

"I follow, I watch all the games on TV, I haven't been going to any Premier League games.

"I don't want to [have the situation of] 'What is he doing here, he's after the job or something?' So I keep out the way, I have been going to Bournemouth and I definitely don't want a job there."

Redknapp, who joined Bournemouth in an advisory role in September, added that he has not been offered a managerial job from an English club yet.

"There's certainly nothing in any of [links to clubs], I have never spoken to anybody about going," he said.

"I have had offers to go abroad, quite a few offers from some decent clubs to be honest, but in this country there's nothing happening at the moment, it's too early.

"If it was a good club, that I thought had a chance of going up and going somewhere it wouldn't be a problem.

"I enjoy football, wherever I go, I have got no divine rights so I'm only going to manage so and so. If it is a good job and I fancy having a go, I would do it."

Redknapp was in charge of Tottenham from 2008 to 2012.
