Harry thinks he’s missed the England boat


Harry Redknapp

Harry Redknapp has admitted that he thinks that he will never get the opportunity to manage England.

Redknapp did state his interest in the position while Fabio Capello’s future was in doubt after England’s awful World Cup campaign.

Harry needs to worry more about what’s going on at the Lane and bringing in some quality, rather than what’s happening at Wembley.

“I’d like to start by saying I’m very happy here at Tottenham, but I don’t think the FA would ever go for me anyway,” Redknapp told the Daily Mail.

“I don’t think I would ever get the job. I don’t know why exactly. I just get the feeling that maybe I wouldn’t be their cup of tea.

“When Capello eventually moves on, I suspect they’ll go for a younger man, even though I think it’s a job that demands experience.

“But they’re saying they want an Englishman, and while I’d like to see that, I don’t see anybody jumping out at me.

“If Roy (Hodgson) does great at Liverpool he could be a contender but by the time Capello moves on Roy’s 65, and you have to wonder if he’d still want it. Right now, I’m just not sure there’s an obvious replacement.”
