QPR boss Redknapp backing McClaren, Hoddle for England U21 job

QPR boss Harry Redknapp wants to see Stuart Pearce replaced as England U21 coach with experience.

Redknapp wrote in The Sun: "The last time we had an England team which looked to be heading in the right direction was under Glenn Hoddle.

"That’s why I think he would be a great choice to become the new U-21 manager or to get involved in coaching the kids.

"When he was boss of Swindon he bought a centre-half, who had been lumping the ball into the stands all his life. Glenn had him playing like Franz Beckenbauer before too long.

"Steve McClaren, too, would be a good choice.

"Since working at FC Twente in Holland I bet he has learned a lot about how to play football the right way."
