FA: No England manager appointment until end of season

The Football Association will not be appointing a new England manager until the end of the season.

FA general secretary Alex Horne said a list of potential candidates to succeed Fabio Capello has been drawn up but that they did not want to disrupt clubs' seasons.

"We've got a list. Long, short.... there's definitely a list. It's a back-end-of-the-season decision for us.

"We recognise that a lot of the managers on the list are employed and we don't want to interrupt anyone's season.

"We're not rushing this and we are expecting something at the back end of the season."

He added that there was no problem waiting until just before Euro 2012 before making the appointment.

"That's perfectly realistic," said Horne. "We've got all of our operational plans in place. We can deliver a squad into Poland so it is perfectly possible."

Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp remains the overwhelming favourite to succeed Capello.
