• Started out at West Ham, where his team-mates included future England FIFA World Cup-winning captain Bobby Moore. A midfielder, Redknapp scored seven goals in 149 appearances before joining Bournemouth in 1972, where he also played over 100 games.

• Moved to America via Brentford in 1976, spending three years in Seattle where he also worked as assistant coach. Held the same post to Moore at non-league Oxford City FC and then went to Bournemouth, where he was appointed manager in late 1983. Masterminded an FA Cup shock against holders Manchester United FC in January 1984.

• Left in summer 1992, returning to West Ham as assistant to Billy Bonds, whom he succeeded as manager in 1994. Gave first-team chances to the likes of Frank Lampard, Rio Ferdinand and Joe Cole during his seven years in charge.

• Appointed Portsmouth's director of football in 2001, Redknapp stepped into the manager's chair the following year. Took them into the Premier League in 2003 and, after a year in charge of local rivals Southampton, returned in December 2005, winning the FA Cup in 2008.

• Struggling Tottenham turned to Redknapp that October and he steered the team away from relegation trouble, also reaching the League Cup final. In 2009/10 he led the club to fourth position in the Premier League, earning a new contract until 2013.
