Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp has revealed that he is unsure whether or not he wants the vacant England manager’s position.
The White Hart Lane head coach has been the frontrunner to succeed Fabio Capello as national selector, but he has admitted that he is happy in his current role.
“I’m not sure,” Redknapp said in an interview with L’Equipe, translated to English by Sky Sports, when asked if he would like to manage England.
“I have a very good job at Tottenham today and I like it. But I do not know. We will wait and see.
“When you have a club, you are looking for a striker and you take them. When you’re coach, you must do with the players you have in your country.
“If you do not have a good scorer, you have none. And you almost never see the players. Two days every two months, it is very difficult,” he stated.
Redknapp continued by talking up France’s hopes at Euro 2012, who he believes will be a difficult opponent for England.
“The French team has a good team. It will be difficult for England at the Euros. The group is difficult with Sweden and Ukraine.
“I believe Laurent Blanc is doing a very good job. The 2010 World Cup was a disaster, but he has come in and done a great job,” he praised.
