Redknapp The Fans Choice For England Job According To Sack Race Readers

Richard Smith by Richard Smith / 28 February 2012, 11:16

A poll run here on thesackrace.com has revealed that Harry Redknapp is the overwhelming choice of fans to become the next England manager. Over 15,000 visitors to the site during the past three weeks have cast their votes following Fabio Capello's depature on 8th February and 6,664 (44%) voted for Redknapp as their choice to be the FA's number one candidate to replace the Italian.

Current caretaker manager, Stuart Pearce, who takes charge of Wednesday's friendly against Holland at Wembley only got 7% of the vote with current Real Madrid boss, Jose Mourinho, the second most popular choice with 2,390 votes (16%) and the recently appointed Sunderland manager, Martin O'Neil, came in third with 1,620 votes (11%).

It would seem that readers of the The Sack Race are not alone in their backing of Harry Redknapp, who appears to be the choice of football pundits, journalists and even his fellow Premier League managers, with the likes of Sir Alex Ferguson publicly stating that he thinks Redknapp is the best man for the job. The Tottenham manager is also the pick with the bookmakers who are now offering odds as short as 1/5 that Harry will be named the next permanent England manager. The price about Redknapp being the next boss of the Three Lions on the day Capello resigned was 2/1, a change which illustrates just how much support he has recieved.

Other names to have been linked to the job include Arsene Wenger, Roy Hodgson and Guus Hiddink, who it would seem is now out of the running following his recent appointment by Russian side, Anzhi Makhachkala. In the past week, Barcelona Coach, Pep Guardiola has emerged as the second favoruite for the job amidst rumours that he could be set to leave the Nou Camp at the end of the season, speculation that has seen the Spaniard's odds crash from 50/1 to 6/1 with Victor Chandler.

As it stands, all the signs point towards the job being Harry Redknapp's to turn down. There has been no word from the FA about their intentions of when they plan to begin the interview process and Redknapp has stated that he has still to have contact with the Football Association and has made no attempt to hide the fact that he would be interested in talking to them about the job. Whether that is before or after Euro 2012 remains to be seen but it would certainly appear that it's more a case of when, rather than will, Redknapp be named the next England manager.
