Manchester United winger Ashley Young isn't surprised seeing Harry Redknapp wanted by England.

The Tottenham manager is favourite for the job.

"When Harry took over, they were near the ­bottom and he has taken them right up the league," said Young. "He is a great manager, that's obviously why he is being tipped for the England job.

"Tottenham have done magnificently. They have been pushing us top two Manchester clubs all the way. But if we show the confidence we have shown, I am sure we can get the result. On the road this season we have done fantastically but we know it is not going to be easy."
