Redknapp backs Warnock for England role

Tottenham Hotspur boss Harry Redknapp has backed Queens Park Rangers manager Neil Warnock as a candidate for the England manager’s job, Sky Sports reports.

Warnock’s QPR travel to White Hart Lane to face Spurs this weekend and Redknapp has praised the talents of the manager, who has led QPR to a mid-table and decent start to the season. Current England Head Coach Fabio Capello is set to leave the job after the Euro 2012 tournament and Redknapp has been touted as his replacement, amid competition from a host of managers.

The Spurs manager believes that Warnock’s outspoken character could help the England side find their talents again and his knowledge of the game is remarkable.

Redknapp said: “I’m sure he could do the job. I don’t think he gets the recognition he deserves. People love to knock him, but he must be doing something right. He just understands the game. He understands good players, knows how to put a good team together and knows players who will do a good job for him.
