Tottenham star Gareth Bale would not blame boss Harry Redknapp if he jumped ship to take the England job.

Redknapp remains the favourite to take over from departed Three Lions manager Fabio Capello following Tottenham's impressive season.

Bale told The Sun: "We all want Harry to stay but he is a great manager and if England do come calling it's one of those lifetime opportunities that you just can't turn down. I wouldn't blame him for going, can you really? You never know if that opportunity will ever come around again."
