Harry Redknapp thinks the Football Association should wait until the end of the season before considering who will take over from Fabio Capello as England manager.

Tottenham boss Redknapp is favourite to succeed Capello, who confirmed that he intends to stick to his pledge of leaving his post after the European Championships next summer. The FA are thought to be considering the former Portsmouth boss as the next Three Lions manager, but he is likely to face competition from Roy Hodgson and other foreign candidates for the position.

"It's very difficult for them to choose another manager if he's already working," Redknapp said. "It's difficult for a manager to agree to take over if he knows he'll be leaving his club at the end of the year. It wouldn't be fair to the club."
