Former Spurs boss Harry Redknapp has opened the door to international teams looking for a manager after admitting that he is on the lookout for 'something good'.

Redknapp has been strongly linked with the Republic of Ireland job over the last seven days as pressure mounted on manager Giovanni Trapattoni.

The FAI have come out and backed Trapattoni to remain in charge, although reports from Italy suggest that the Trapattoni Camp were expecting the Italian to get sacked from his position.

"I wouldn't just dive in and take any job for the sake of it" - Harry Redknapp

"I am enjoying it (being out of work) and if something good comes along that interested me, I'd be interested in getting back in again," said Redknapp.

"It would have to be something I'd really want to do. I wouldn't just dive in and take any job for the sake of it.

"I worked with good players the last eight or nine years or so and enjoyed it so that is where I would want to be.

"I've had offers from abroad - quite a few good offers from decent clubs abroad - but they've not really interested me so I've not sort of done anything with any of them.

Redknapp has also been linked with the Scotland job as manager Craig Levein has also come under fire, with the 2-0 midweek defeat in Belgium leaving his side bottom of their World Cup qualifying group.
