Pen Pic

As a player, Redknapp played for West Ham United between 1965-1972 and moved to Bournemouth in 1972.

He made over 100 appearances for the Cherries before brief stints at Brentford in 1976 and the Seattle Sounders between 1976-1979.

He returned to Dean Court in the 1980's and went on to become manager between 1983-1992.

During that period, Redknapp became the first man in the clubs history to take the club into the second tier of English football and also inspired the FA Cup giant killing of Manchester United in 1984.

He eventually left Dean Court at the end of the 1991-92 season.

The following season he joined West Ham, initially as assistant, but it wasn't long before he was named as manager.

In 1999 he achieved the clubs second highest league finish of fifth in the Premier League and qualified for Europe, two years later and he left Upton Park and eventually moved to Portsmouth as director of football before becoming manager in 2002.

He led the team to promotion to the Premier League in 2003 but left the club for rivals Southampton in 2004, but couldn't help the side avoid relegation from the Premier League and he was soon back at Portsmouth.

During his second spell at Pompey, Redknapp won the FA Cup and took them into Europe, but would move on to Tottenham a few months later.

Redknapp won the Premier League Manager of the Year award in 2010 and qualified Tottenham for the Champions League, in 2012 he was linked to the England managers job, but within a few months the Football Association gave the role to Roy Hodgson, while Spurs sacked Redknapp for failing to qualify again for the Champions League.

In September 2012 he briefly re-joined AFC Bournemouth in a non-contract advisory position and attended a few games and training sessions during Paul Groves period in charge of the club.
