Former AFC Bournemouth and current Queens Park Rangers manager Harry Redknapp is not looking forward to sitting in the opposition dug out at Dean Court next season.

Redknapp’s QPR failed to avoid relegation from the Premier League last season and with the Cherries promotion from League One, the two clubs will meet during next seasons Championship campaign.

Redknapp spent a brief spell at Dean Court acting as an ‘advisor’ to former manager Paul Groves after Redknapp lost his previous job as manager of Tottenham.

He went on to join QPR in November and next season will be looking to get his side back into the Premier League at the first attempt, but whilst promotion is the aim, avoiding embarrassment at home is also a priority.

Redknapp told Fulham Chronicle

‘I can`t say I`m looking forward to it that much – I`d rather be going to Old Trafford.

“It will be a hard game believe me. I`ve watched them (Bournemouth) last season and they`ve played some good football. They`ll turn some teams over, and that`s all I need to get beat so close to home.”
