Redknapp ignoring England talk

Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp has insisted that talk of him becoming the next England manager will not halt his side’s Champions League push, Sky Sports reports.

Spurs are in a rich vein of form so far this season and are in the top four of the Premier League following a unbeaten run of eleven games. That run was halted by Stoke City on Sunday, but Redknapp has been idolised by the Spurs fans ever since he took over in October 2008. England manager Fabio Capello will leave in the 2012 summer, after the European Championships, and Redknapp has been touted as the next replacement.

Redknapp has never ruled himself out of the England job, but is focusing on Spurs’ ambitions to push into the Champions League. The 64 year old travels with Spurs to Ireland tonight to take on Shamrock Rovers in their final Europa League group game.

‘I just have to get on with my job. That’s all I can do. I don’t look that far ahead really. I am not a person who thinks about next year or the year after. I am only looking at what I am doing now. I have to keep focused on Tottenham. The only thing that enters my mind is getting them back in the Champions League’, Redknapp said.
