Harry Redknapp is fully aware that he is the people's choice to become the next England manager.

The Tottenham boss insists, however, that until he receives an approach from the Football Association, he remains focused on his duties at White Hart Lane. Redknapp is the overwhelming favourite to succeed Fabio Capello as national coach after the Italian quit his post last week, having clashed with the FA over their decision to strip John Terry of the England captaincy.

Redknapp has spent the majority of this week in Abu Dhabi resting following a draining 13-day trial which ended with him being cleared of two counts of tax evasion, and the 64-year-old told Abu Dhabi Sports: "I'd be a liar if I said I wasn't the popular choice. I know I am, it's been everywhere, in every paper every day. But it's not an easy one."
