"I'm not unhappy with his appointment," said Redknapp in the Daily Mail. "I just think the manager of England should be English."
While Redknapp accepts The FA's decision to go foreign, he is somewhat upset that chief executive Brian Barwick did not at least speak to him to garner his opinion on the matter.
"Yeah, I'd like to have spoken to Brian," continued Redknapp. "I know I was never going to get it, but I'm obviously not important. I've only managed for more than 1,000 games, 13 seasons in The Premier League, fifth in The Premier League.
"Great, talk to Sir Alex Ferguson. Then talk to the others. Great, but why not talk to me? I have plenty to say to him."
