Derby County football advisor Harry Redknapp doesn’t know whether he will be asked to continue managing Jordan beyond their final two World Cup qualifiers, according to the Derby Telegraph.

The former Spurs boss, who was appointed as a football advisor for the Rams earlier this month, was asked by Jordan FA president Prince Ali bin al-Hussein to take charge of the national team for their games against Bangladesh and Australia.

Jordan thrashed Bangladesh 8-0 and face the Socceroos on Tuesday knowing that a win will catapult them to the top of Group B which in turn will give them a place in Asian qualifying’s third round for the 2018 World Cup finals in Russia.

Redknapp said: “I’ve enjoyed it obviously but I don’t know about the future. I only came for two games, that was what I did with Prince Ali.

“I’m (advisor) at Derby at the moment so as soon as I get back from here I go straight to Derby. We play Cardiff away on Saturday, it’s a big game for us. I just want to get a great result from Jordan and go from there.”

Redknapp’s advisory role at the iPro sees him work alongside manager Darren Wassall for the rest of the season.

He combines this role with managing Jordan, which is his first job at the helm since resigning as boss of QPR midway through last season due to an impending knee operation.

The 69-year-old quit after admitting that he wouldn’t be able to give 100% to the role. The R’s were subsequently relegated from the Premier League under Chris Ramsay.
