Redknapp wants England job one day

Spurs manager Harry Redknapp has admitted he would like to manage England, but not right now.


The White Hart Lane chief is the favourite to take up the post when its current incumbent, Fabio Capello, departs after England’s Euro 2012 campaign.


Redknapp is not entertaining thoughts of the National team right now, however, and insists he is concentrating solely on the job in hand at Spurs.


“I'm aware of it, I'd be liar if I said otherwise,” he said in response to being asked if he knew he was the bookies’ favourite to get the job.


“Is it an ambition? Yes, but I've not been offered it. They may have some other people in mind. Who knows?”


Despite this, Redknapp was keen to stress that he is not going to look ahead and has plenty to do right now with Tottenham.


“I just have to get on with my job. That's all I can do. I don't know what will happen at the end of the season, if anything does,” he added.


“I don't look that far ahead really. I am not a person who thinks about next year or the year after, (if you do that) you start wishing your life away.


“I am only looking at what I am doing now. I have to keep focused on Tottenham. The only thing that enters my mind is getting them back in the Champions League.”


Redknapp’s England stock has skyrocketed since his time at Spurs and his side’s recent success has only heightened speculation.


The White Hart Lane club were on their best run since 1961 up until their loss to Stoke City last weekend.


They had won six games in a row and were victorious in ten of the previous 11 eleven fixtures from their last defeat.
