Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp is prepared to talk with the Football Association over the vacant England job, despite his love for Spurs, according
Senior officials at the Football Association are discussing making a move for the Spurs manager after Fabio Capello resigned on Wednesday evening. Redknapp is the firm favourite for the job and has been backed from all quarters, but is still committed to life at White Hart Lane. Redknapp has ruled out the opportunity of managing both Spurs and England and has stated that he will have to think about his future.
The Spurs boss said: ‘If the opportunity comes, I’ll have to consider it. It wouldn’t be easy leaving Tottenham. It would be very difficult. I can’t take my eye off the ball at Tottenham at the moment. We are looking to get Champions League football and we are still in the FA Cup. I owe it to them to keep focused on the job here’.
Spurs currently sit third in the table and are keeping plenty of pressure on the top two after their good point away at Anfield on Monday. Redknapp was recently acquitted of tax evasion and will take his place on the Spurs dugout against Newcastle after missing Monday’s fixture at Anfield.
