Ferguson confirms Premier League block on England talk

Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has revealed that he has been asked by the Premier League to stop discussing the England manager vacancy, Sky Sports reports.

Following Fabio Capello’s shock decision to resign as England manager last month, the Football Association are searching for a new manager to lead them to Euro 2012. England under 21 boss Stuart Pearce took caretaker charge for last week’s friendly defeat by the Netherlands and has made himself available for the job to take England to Poland and Ukraine.

Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp is the overwhelming favourite on a permanent basis and the Man United boss believes it is inevitable that Redknapp will get the job as England boss. Ferguson joins a number of other Premier League managers who have waded in on the debate, but the Premier League have now taken steps to stop talk over the job. The 70 year old has received instructions warning him not to discuss the England manager’s job and has no clue as to why he has been gagged.

Ferguson said: “The Premier League has written to me asking me not to talk about the England manager’s job. I’ve absolutely no idea why I’m not supposed to discuss it”.
