But, with a home game against Liverpool to come on Sunday, Redknapp does not believe he job is under immediate threat if recent results do not improve. When asked if he was feeling any pressure, Redknapp said: “None whatsoever. ”Until you’ve been under pressure you don’t know what pressure is and I’m not under pressure, none whatsoever. I’m looking forward to the game on Sunday. ”We have played seven games, we are seven games into a Premier League season. We have played three home games, we got beaten by Hull 1-0 and missed a penalty, we beat Sunderland and drew with Stoke in a tough game – it is not easy. ”I still have every confidence in the players here that we will start getting the results, and hopefully that will start on Sunday.” Redknapp’s current deal at the club expires at the end of the current campaign and for weeks he had been expected to sign an extension. But the former West Ham and Tottenham boss is not concerned about negotiating a new contract and is still enjoying a close working relationship with Fernandes. “I don’t need assurances from anybody,” he said. The 67-year-old guided the Hoops back into the Barclays Premier League through the play-offs last year, but the side have struggled on their return to the top flight, sitting bottom of the table with just four points from their opening seven games. Former Stoke and Crystal Palace manager Tony Pulis has joined ex-Tottenham boss Tim Sherwood as a reported candidate to fill the vacancy, should QPR owner Tony Fernandes decide a change is required. QPR boss Harry Redknapp does not want any assurances over his position and insists he is not under pressure at Loftus Road. “It is up to Tony what he does. If he is not happy come and talk to me – I’m a big boy. I’m going for dinner with him tonight. I’m not going to be there buying him dinner to keep my job – I will let him buy dinner. “The impasse over my contract is that I wasn’t bothered about signing a new contract, not in the slightest. “What is a contract? A contract is you work for a club. If they don’t want you, you talk to the chairman, sort out what you’re doing and you move on. “If we stay up and at the end of the year Tony wants to talk about another year with me I’d be delighted, that is what I want to do in my life.” Fernandes has backed Redknapp since he was chosen as the man to replace Mark Hughes in November 2012. But the Malaysian businessman will be all-too aware that Redknapp was unable to prevent QPR falling into the Championship having failed to win any of the first 12 league games under Hughes and will not want to see a similar pattern emerge this year. Although Redknapp has previously said he would have very little desire to remain in place if QPR were to be relegated, he insists his passion for the game still keeps him putting in the effort to turn things around. “I was up at four o’clock this morning,” he said. “I left my house at twenty-to-five, I must be doing it for some reason, not because I need to feed the dogs, it is because I love it. “When I don’t love doing it I won’t get up in the morning. When the alarm goes off I will turn over, and on the day I don’t feel like coming in that will be it for me. “It is not easy but I’m confident we will be okay. Certainly no-one is walking around, moping around feeling sorry for themselves. If we had seven points we would be delighted. We are a couple of points short of what we should have had.” Press Association
Alan Pardew has dismissed suggestions he has gambled by signing Emmanuel Adebayor, revealing the striker has signed a performance-based contract to inspire him to produce his best. “If you look at Harry Redknapp’s career, he was very good at regenerating some senior players who were supposedly at the end of their careers, and I’ve had a couple of situations like that: Teddy Sheringham springs to mind, who was playing in my Premier League team (at West Ham) at the age of 38. “You sometimes cannot get the kind of quality that Adebayor can bring. We’re very fortunate to have him, I make no bones about that. Our fans should be very optimistic, because I am.” Pardew has previously worked with Hatem Ben Arfa and Carlos Tevez, giving him experience of other players with difficult streaks, but he has also been in contact with Tim Sherwood regarding his success in managing Adebayor at Spurs. “It’s important to understand the history, talk to people who have worked with him,” he said. “Particularly Tim Sherwood, who’s someone I know well, and I know from Tim that there’s certain things Adebayor works on, works with, and I’d be foolish to ignore them, so I’m going to try and help create an atmosphere here that gives him the best possible chance of success. “He didn’t need to come here, the financial deal for him to stay at home or to be here is probably exactly the same, so he’s putting himself up and that fills me with confidence. “I’ve had messages with Tim, via somebody else, but I probably will speak to Tim as I go along. “If I can get him anywhere near his best, it’ll be more than good enough for us.” Press Association The enigmatic former Arsenal, Manchester City, Real Madrid and Tottenham striker joined Crystal Palace on Tuesday after spending five months as a free agent following his release by Spurs. He possesses the talent to remain among the Barclays Premier League’s finest but has a reputation for being both lazy and problematic, causing concerns he may disrupt what has so far been a fine season for Palace and undermine their pursuit of European football. But Pardew is adamant he has sufficiently researched Adebayor’s character and is confident Palace can benefit the 31-year-old’s career as much as he can provide them with much-needed goals. “We’ve incentivised his contract to do that, in terms of him being a success,” said Pardew, who accepts the striker remains too short of match fitness to start against Stoke in the FA Cup fourth round on Saturday. “I see in him a desire to get his career back on track, and I think I can help him. I’m hoping that’s a win-win situation for him and for us. “You cannot underestimate the quality he has. I’ve tried to sign him twice before, once at West Ham, when I came that close, and at Newcastle we talked long and hard about him. “He’s a character that needs to be loved and the group I have… he’s going to get that. “For us it’s about bringing in a striker to give everyone a boost. We all felt sorry for ourselves, no (Yannick) Bolasie, Connor (Wickham’s) now suspended, so it’s great for us. “You can see in the training ground there’s a lift already. He’s done the first part of his job because everybody is really pleased he’s here. “The only risk is if he doesn’t play well. I can’t see any other risk. I think we discard players quite quickly, and sometimes too early.
