Harry Redknapp has lined himself up to be Fabio Capello’s successor as manager of the England national team, reports Shoot.co.uk.
The Tottenham manager has long been linked with the hot seat, often called ‘the biggest job in football’ and he admitted: “I’m not pushing myself for the job. Whoever gets offered the job, if they’re an Englishman it would be hard to say no because it’s your country.”
Redknapp also claimed that the job is like a ‘poisoned chalice’, but it would now seem that should Capello be relieved of his duties after Euro 2012, Redknapp will be named as England manager, and so this season may well be his last as manager of Tottenham Hotspur.

Gomes has Spurs future.
Goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes is still part of Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp’s plans, despite being axed from recent squads as Redknapp favoured summer signing Brad Friedel in goal, and choosing veteran Carlo Cudicini as back up.
The Brazilian goalkeeper has reportedly asked for a transfer, but Sky Sports reports that Redknapp told the keeper he does have a future at White Hart Lane. “He’s obviously upset he’s been left out. It’s been difficult. I brought Brad in, there’s competition for places and I just decided to go with Brad. It was my gut feeling,” said the 64-year-old boss.
Walker backs youngsters.
Tottenham full-back Kyle Walker has backed Tottenham’s young squad to silence PAOK’s infamous crowds in their Europa League fixture which takes place tonight, according to eatsleepsport. Whilst Tottenham are taking a relaxed attitude to this competition, the Greek side will be desperate to advance to Round 2, but the England under-21 man is confident. “We just need to play the game we are taught and the rest will take care of itself.” Youngsters Falque, Livermore, Kane, Carroll and Townsend are all likely to be handed starts.
