Bolton boss Owen Coyle has joined Sunderland manager Martin O’Neill and former England boss Graham Taylor by tipping Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp to take the England job, Sky
Fabio Capello resigned as manager on Wednesday following the decision made by the FA to strip John Terry of the England captaincy. The Italian was set to leave in the summer and Redknapp had been earmarked as his replacement following the European Championships. Now that Capello has left, the Spurs boss is being urged to take over at the England helm. O’Neill has called Redknapp’s achievements at England ‘outstanding’ and believes that he is deserved of becoming the next England manager.
Taylor managed England for three years after the 1990 World Cup and believes Redknapp is the perfect candidate to take over as England manager. Redknapp has emerged as one of the best managers in Europe following his spell at Tottenham and has been tipped to do a good job with the national team. Coyle insists that England have a great chance at the Euros and despite Tottenham’s good form this season, Redknapp has to take charge of his country.
Coyle said: ‘I can totally understand why the clamour would be for Harry Redknapp. Harry Redknapp ticks every box, and he also has fantastic football knowledge,” he added. “When you put that all together, there is no doubt he is a complete package. The difficulty with that is that he has done such a fantastic job with Tottenham Hotspur. I have no doubt he would be the perfect choice, but I think Tottenham might have something to say about that.’
