His first major coaching role was at AFC Bournemouth where he was assistant manager to David Webb.
Redknapp also managed clubs including West Ham, Southampton, Tottenham and Birmingham but his most famous period as a manager was whilst he was at Portsmouth for his second spell.
During the 2008-09 season, Redknapp helped Pompey lift the FA Cup.
The run included a quarter-final win over Manchester United and in the final they beat Cardiff 1-0.
Redknapp is the last English manager to win a major English trophy.
Why did he go on I’m A Celebrity and how much did he get paid?
Before going on the show Redknapp said: “I was going to do Strictly this year, but I didn’t think I could dance, that was one thing. I actually had a trial with one of the professionals who came round my house.
“She was fantastic, but after I trod on her toes about five times I realised I wasn’t a very good dancer.”
The ex-manager pocketed £500,000 for his stint on the show.
He was the second-highest celeb on the show, behind Noel Edmunds who took home £600,000.
What was the 1990 accident he was in?
In June 1990, Redknapp was involved in a car accident in Italy whilst there to watch the 1990 FIFA World Cup.
Whilst travelling at night with York City chairman Fred Whitehouse and Brian Tiler – Aston Villa chairman and Bournemouth’s managing director – they were involved in a head-on collision with another car which contained three Italian soldiers.
The crashed killed Tiler and the three occupants of the other vehicle whilst Redknapp, who was covered in petrol, was pulled out of the car by Sinclair.
Redknapp was presumed dead at the scene but after spending two days unconscious he was flown home in an air ambulance which was paid for by Bournemouth.
He suffered a fractured skull, broken nose, cracked ribs and a gash in his left leg but made a full recovery except losing his sense of smell and gaining a facial tic.
