Manchester United striker Michael Owen sees Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp as the next England coach.

Owen has been largely overlooked during Fabio Capello's reign as England coach and believes Redknapp is a likely candidate to succeed the Italian after Euro 2012.

"We've got a decent team, we've got a very good team," he said.

"Personally I would like an Englishman (as national coach) to be honest, I've always been of the opinion that not just as a manager, your physio, your coach, your players, your manager, everyone, that is what your national team is about.

"England national team and you've got a Spanish or Italian or a French coach walking around with an English tracksuit on - it doesn't feel right in many ways.

"Harry Redknapp has been touted a lot. You'd have to say him wouldn't you?"
