FA Begin Search For Next England Manager

Mick Bates by Mick Bates / 09 February 2012, 10:39

The media circus continues today as England wake up to the stark reality that with only four months to go until the European Championships they are without a manager and captain. Yesterday, in a day of unprecedented high drama, Harry Redknapp was installed as the odds-on favourite in the Next England Manager Betting after being cleared of all charges of tax evasion. Later in the day Fabio Capello sensationally resigned as England manager after a meeting with the Football Association, stating that his authority had been undermined following the FA's decision to strip John Terry of the captaincy.

Attention will now turn to who will succeed Capello. Redknapp is the overwhelming favourite in the betting and at the moment appears to have the backing of the whole country, with the likes of Wayne Rooney tweeting his support for the Tottenham boss. Spurs will be desperate to hold onto their man but if England come calling it will be difficult to stand in his way.

The FA are believed to be very keen to snap up an Englishman but that hasn't stopped Guus Hiddink in reportedly expressing his interest in the vacancy. The former Chelsea boss has a very impressive CV and is currently next in the running behind Redknapp. Other names that feature in the odds include England U21 manager Stuart Pearce, Real Madrid's Jose Mourinho and West Brom boss Roy Hodgson who was previously linked to the job after World Cup 2010.

The immediate focus for the FA will be to appoint someone in the short-term for England's friendly with the Netherlands on 29th February, with speculation suggesting that Stuart Pearce, Gareth Southgate or even Trevor Brooking will take temporary charge. England are scheduled to play two more friendlies before they kick off their Euro 2012 campaign against France on 11th June.
