Glenn Hoddle has played for Tottenham, Chelsea, Swindon and AS Monaco and of course he has been in international level with England.
Redknapp had to say:
I am really pleased to bring Glenn in, I spoke with the chairman about the possibility of bringing Glenn in, and he thought it was a great idea. Glenn will be great. He has a brilliant knowledge of the game and will be fantastic out on the training ground with the players.
Glenn Hoddle had to say, “I am really pleased to take up Harry’s offer to come in and work with him, Kevin and Joe. After winning promotion last season, the first aim at QPR is to stay in the Premier League and I am looking forward to helping play my part as we try to achieve that. I have always loved coaching, and I can’t wait to meet the players, get on the training pitch and get to work.”
