Redknapp was born in Barton on Sea, Hampshire and started his career at Tottenham Hotspur as a youth player but turned down their offer of a contract to play for Bournemouth under his father, manager Harry Redknapp. He spent most of his first two-and-a-half years as a substitute or in the reserves, missing the 1992 FA Cup Final triumph and only becoming a regular first-team player in the 1993-94 season, at the expense of Mark Walters. Redknapp, in particular, came to be the face of the team and was singled out because of his off-field lifestyle; often being described along with David James as a player more concerned with the catwalk and modelling shoots for fashion labels like Top Man and Armani than his football prowess. Redknapp became vice- and then full club captain by 1999-2000 following the departures of John Barnes, Steve McManaman and Paul Ince.

Redknapp comes from a well-known footballing family. Redknapp was also capped 17 times by England, scoring one goal. At this time, Redknapp had also become one of the mass-marketed poster boy icons of the newly developing FA Premier League where, alongside other photogenic young players like Manchester United players Ryan Giggs and Lee Sharpe, he was used ceaselessly in commercials, advertising spots and for the league’s promotional purposes in merchandising and sales, with the result being that football stars had become idols on par with rock stars and pop stars, by and around the mid to late 1990s. Redknapp became vice- and then full club captain by 1999-2000 following the departures of John Barnes, Steve McManaman and Paul Ince. He made his debut at the beginning of the following campaign when he played on 17 August 2002 in the 2-2 league draw with his former club Liverpool’s rival Everton at Goodison Park. Redknapp’s only goal for the club came three days later in the 3-1 FA Cup 3rd round victory over Northampton Town at Sixfields Stadium. Redknapp was rarely fully fit during his brief spell at the Saints and was not able to prevent them from being relegated to the Championship after 27 successive seasons of top flight football.
