Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp has conceded that, should be be approached to succeed Fabio Capello as England manager, he would find the offer very difficult to refuse.

Speaking to BBC Sport, Redknapp said;

“If you’re an Englishman it would be hard to turn it down. It’s the pinnacle of your career. If you’ve got good players, managing England wouldn’t be that difficult – and we’ve got good players, so I’m sure somebody out there could do it.”

However, the 63-year-old admitted that the thought of taking over the national side is not a prospect that keeps him up at night;

“Honestly, it’s not something I sit at home and ever think about. I really don’t. 2012? I look at my life and I worry about next week, to be honest.”

Which is understandable, considering that his whole face seems to be one giant tumour.
