Redknapp flattered by England link


Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp admits he is "flattered" to be the overwhelming favourite to succeed Fabio Capello as England boss but appeared to rule out the prospect of combining his club role with managing the national team.

The 64-year-old is the bookmakers' favourite for the England job and appears to be the popular choice among supporters, the media and other managers and players.

Asked if he was flattered to be the popular choice to lead England, he told a press conference televised by Sky Sports News: "Yes of course. It's nice if people put me in a position where they think I've got a chance of getting the job. It is flattering, other managers have come out and said nice things and I appreciate everybody's support really."
