Report: Indian Super League clubs interested in Sam Allardyce and Harry Redknapp

Sam Allardyce

West Ham United manager Sam Allardyce and former Queens Park Rangers boss Harry Redknapp are reportedly on the radar of Indian Super League clubs.

Indian Super League clubs are interested in the services of managers Sam Allardyce and Harry Redknapp, according to The Sun.

Allardyce is currently in charge of Premier League outfit West Ham United, but he will become a ‘free agent’ at the end of the season.

Redknapp, formerly at Tottenham Hotspur and Queens Park Rangers, is without a managerial job at the moment.

According to The Sun, representatives of Indian clubs based in Mumbai, Delhi and Chennai are “seeking to recruit out of work English managers for the new campaign which begins in October”.

Allardyce and Redknapp are the two names mentioned in the report, mainly because they are - or would be - available when the new Indian Super League campaign begins later this year.

The 2015 ISL campaign is scheduled to start in September and end in December and promises to involve loads of money.

While financially it may be an attractive proposition, if Allardyce and Redknapp do agree to take charge of ISL clubs, then they would be effectively ruling themselves out of a Premier League job for the 2015-16 campaign.

Of course, Allardyce and Redknapp could have offers once they are back from India due to managerial sackings, but would they be willing to inherit teams in the middle of the season?
