Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp recently underwent heart surgery and today it has been revealed that doctors have advised Redknapp to stay away from football for four to five weeks. Harry, however, hopes to back sooner than that.
Tottenham Hotspur have 15 days until their next game, thanks to another international break, so the timing would seem to be beneficial to both Redknapp and Spurs, but I think we would all be incredibly surprised if Harry was not in the dugout for the Aston Villa match on November 21st.
I don't know if there's a quantifiable difference between having Harry in charge versus Kevin Bond and Joe Jordan, but given today's performance I would imagine the difference isn't that great. If Harry needs to stay away for a month or so that's fine, his health is what's most important. Hopefully, Harry has a speedy recovery and is back on the touchline soon.
