England manager Roy Hodgson expressed his surprise at Harry Redknapp's departure from Tottenham.

Redknapp was the favourite with bookmakers to replace Fabio Capello before Hodgson was appointed.

Hodgson said: "I was very sad to hear the news. It came as a major surprise to me and I'm disappointed for him.

"I wish him all the best and hope the next job he wants comes along very soon."
