QPR boss Redknapp backs Arsenal's Wilshere over England comments

QPR boss Harry Redknapp has backed Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere's England player comments.

Redknapp insists Wilshere is right.

Speaking on BBC Radio 4, Redknapp said: "I'm in Jack Wilshere's corner. There are several clubs in the Premier League now, whose youth teams are absolutely full up with players who are bought in from other clubs abroad, and we'll end up with no English kids in the team.

"I can see that happening in the future, where it'll be three or four English boys and the rest will be lads who have come in here at 16 or 17 because they're the cream of the crop abroad and we'll be taking them from Belgium or France or wherever we can bring them in from, and it won't be an England team anymore. So I'm absolutely with Jack. The English kids who go to academies at 9, 8, 10 years of age and striving to be professionals, there'll be no future for them in the England team I don't think if we allow this to happen."
