Harry Redknapp Rules Out Part Time England Jobby Steve Claridge / 17 February 2012, 13:12Tweet
Harry Redknapp has ruled out managing Tottenham and England simultaneously after Euro 2012 as it would simply be 'impossible'. The Tottenham boss is the hot favourite in the Next England Manager betting market and is expected to be approached by the Football Association to take over for the European Championships this summer.
Fabio Capello's shock departure just over a week ago sent the media into frenzy with speculation linking a variety of managers to the job. However, Redknapp is widely regarded as the outstanding candidate due to his success with Spurs. The North London club have been in superb form this season and still have an outside chance of winning the Premier League although Champions League qualification is their main goal. For the meantime Redknapp will focus on his job at White Hart Lane, with pivotal matches against Man Utd and Arsenal coming up as well as an FA Cup fifth round tie away to Stevenage on Sunday.
England Under-21 manager Stuart Pearce will take temporary charge of England's upcoming friendly at home to the Netherlands on Wednesday 29th February. Paddy Power have installed The Three Lions as the 6/4 favourites to claim a confidence boosting win against the World Cup 2010 runners-up, while Holland can be backed at 13/8 to win at Wembley, with a draw available at 11/5.
