Talk about a freak accident! Redknapp whose last football coaching job was at Queens Park Rangers accidentally ran over his wife in an accident resulting to an operation in her ankle.
According to reports in the UK Sandra (Redknapp’s wife) got caught in the door of her husband’s Range Rover and Redknapp himself unaware drove away – dragging her along the road in the process.
Mrs Redknapp had to have surgery in her ankle after having surgery on ligament damage sustained during the accident.
The former Premier League Manager was dropping his wife off at the shops in Westbourne when the accident occurred, and said he is relieved she is ok.
“It was just a freak accident you know,” Redknapp told the BBC.
“Sandra went across the road and unfortunately she had gone behind the car to cross over the road and as I went to drive off I drove over her ankle.
“It’s lucky, if the full weight of the car had gone over the ankle God knows what would have happened to her. We’re ok.”
