It’s safe to say barely anyone expected to wake up to this morning’s news — Harry Redknapp is back in football management.

The former Tottenham boss has been appointed as the new manager of Championship side Birmingham City after the resignation of Gianfranco Zola last night.

It will be Redknapp’s first job since leaving Jordan (not Joe — the country) last year. Prior to that, he resigned as QPR manager in 2015 after a three-year stint with the London club.

Many Spurs fans still admire what Redknapp achieved at White Hart Lane. Despite failing to win a trophy, the 70-year-old took Tottenham to the quarter-finals of the Champions League and finished in the top four twice.

Others believe Redknapp was lucky to have a number of star players in his Spurs side, including Luka Modric, Gareth Bale and Rafael van der Vaart.

Regardless, almost every Tottenham supporter will have been shocked by this morning’s news. Here’s how Twitter reacted.
