Redknapp brushes off England talk

Brought to you by William Hill


Harry Redknapp insists he will not let talk of him becoming the next England manager derail his attempt to get Tottenham back in to the Champions League.

Redknapp is the bookmakers' favourite to succeed Fabio Capello when he stands down as England boss next summer having transformed Spurs from relegation contenders to Champions League quarter-finalists since taking over at White Hart Lane in October 2008.

Spurs chairman Daniel Levy revealed on Tuesday that Redknapp had given him assurances that he was not "at this present time" thinking about replacing Capello, and the 64-year-old confirmed this, replying when asked where he stood on the prospect of the job: "Nowhere really. I just have a job to do here."
