Cape town - Harry
Redknapp says who ever takes over at Swansea will have a "tough" but
not "impossible" job of keeping the side in the Premier League.
The struggling Swans dismissed Bob Bradley after just 85 days at the
club and are on the lookout for an experienced manager to save them from
The 69-year-old former West Ham and Tottenham boss, who has had some
success over the years of promoting sides as well as saving struggling
teams, did admit though that it would be "a good challenge".
Speaking to talkSPORT, Redknapp, who was most recently
involved with the Jordan national side, added that he may well be
tempted to return to the English top-flight.
He said: "It sounds interesting – it sounds a challenge!
"Swansea are a good club and it would be a tough challenge, but a good challenge.
"It’s a great club – where they’ve come from and what they’ve done, and the atmosphere there is absolutely fantastic.
"It’s a tough job for someone but it’s not an impossible one – I still think they’ve got a chance of staying up.
"It’s going to be tight, but they’ve still got a chance."
He added: "I’ve not heard anything, I’ve had no approach from anybody.
“But it’s a good club and if the opportunity and the challenge came up it would be one that would be interesting.”
Ryan Giggs and Chris Coleman are the reported early-front-runners for
the post, with Gary Rowett also apparently being considered.
Swansea next face the daunting task of welcoming a title-chasing Arsenal side to the Liberty Stadium and will be led by first-team coaches Alan Curtis and Paul Williams in the short term.
Kick off is at 17:00.
