Harry would speak to Jamie before taking England job


Harry Redknapp -Tottenham Hotspur News

Harry Redknapp wouldn’t take the England job if his son Jamie did not approve.

The Spurs boss is known for having a very close relationship with his son, who was in attendance throughout his recent court case.

Harry admits that he would have to sit down and talk over the possibility of suceeding Fabio Capello with the Sky Sports pundit.

“I speak to Jamie more than anybody,” he said.

“I’d speak to him about it for sure – he’s one I’d stand on more than anyone.”

Redknapp, though, insists he is strong enough to take on the England job and any flack that would come with it.

“It goes with the job,” said the 64-year-old.

“There have been some good managers who have all had it. Apart from Terry Venables in Euro ’96, everybody else has been slaughtered at times.

“If you lose a couple of games, it is like the world is coming to an end, isn’t it? That’s what you have to put up with.

“It is getting near the knuckle now, though. I heard the other day during a game on TV some people chanting about some player’s wife.

“I couldn’t believe what I was hearing.

“But that is what happens now – it is different to how it used to be.”
