Lord Sugar predicts Harry Redknapp to manage Bournemouth by the end of the season

The former Tottenham chairman does not believe Eddie Howe will last.

It is certainly looking like Bournemouth are finding it tough in the Premier League. They have had their moments but their last two fixtures have been humiliating and eye-opening defeats.

Following on from their 5-1 loss to Manchester City last weekend they suffered defeat today by the same scoreline against Tottenham Hotspur.

The Tottenham result now means Bournemouth have not won in their last four Premier League games and sit in 17th place in the Premier League table - just ahead of Sunderland and Newcastle United in the relegation zone.

It was no surprise to see Harry Redknapp at Dean Court today. He lives locally and is a former Bournemouth and Tottenham manager.

The former Tottenham boss managed Bournemouth between 1983 and 1992 and is considered a hero at the club.

Now, a former Tottenham chairman, has tweeted his thoughts on a potential return to Bournemouth for Redknapp.

Lord Sugar sent this message:

Which certainly seems unfair on Eddie Howe. His achievements with Bournemouth have been magnificent and the step up to the Premier League was always going to prove difficult.

The fact is Bournemouth have also been robbed of three of their star players in the form of Callum Wilson, Max Gradel and Tyrone Mings.

If anyone has deserved some slack it is Howe and it is hard to see what Redknapp, who failed to keep QPR in the league, could do differently with this group.
