Harry Redknapp, the favourite for the England manager's job, has revealed how he "got the needle" from former national team boss Fabio Capello after criticising his tactics on television.
The Tottenham manager is the overwhelming favourite to succeed Capello as England boss, with the Football Association still conducting the recruitment process. Speaking in an interview for the Radio Times with former Spurs chairman Lord Sugar, Redknapp talks about the pressures of management but also how easy it can be to upset people even while working as a pundit.
He said: "I did an England game at Wembley about two years ago and I said: 'I can't believe we're playing Steven Gerrard on the left wing'. Fabio got the needle with me because he thought I had criticised him and he didn't like it, but I was only just giving him my opinion."
