QPR boss Redknapp backs away from Hodgson criticism

QPR boss Harry Redknapp has backed away from criticism of England's appointment of Roy Hodgson.

It was revealed last week that he did not trust the FA to "show me a good manager if their lives depended on it".

But Redknapp has denied any ill feeling, suggesting instead Hodgson was "better qualified", and congratulated the 66-year-old after he steered England to next summer's World Cup finals with a 2-0 win over Poland on Tuesday night.

"They made a good choice. Roy's an excellent manager and nobody disputes that," he told BBC Radio 5 Live. "Looking at it he was better equipped and better qualified, maybe at international level, than I was.

"I don't want to dispute that. He's a very well-qualified guy.

"I haven't got a problem with Roy. I'm delighted he's doing well and no one is disputing the choice of Roy as manager. I really am not."
