Harry Redknapp says the vacant Chelsea manager's position would be a "dream job" for anyone to take on, but he insists he is not the right man to succeed Andre Villas-Boas.

Villas-Boas' eight-month tenure as Chelsea boss came to an end on Sunday and Tottenham boss Redknapp - who is the overwhelming favourite to become the next England manager - admits the wealth on offer to the incoming boss makes the post at Stamford Bridge an attractive position, but he says he will not take up the role.

"It would be difficult. I wouldn't be able to come back to north London," he said, with a smile. "So no, I will pass on that one."
