QPR boss Redknapp: England should find role for Wigan's Martinez

QPR boss Harry Redknapp feels the FA should find a national team role for Wigan Athletic manager Roberto Martinez.

Given what Martinez has done for Wigan, and with his footballing roots embedded in Spain who currently dominate the international stage, Redknapp feels the 39-year-old could one day work for England.

"If we want to talk about playing on the world stage and keeping possession of the ball, really playing like the Spanish, we should look at Roberto," said Redknapp earlier this week.

"It would be interesting to have someone like Martinez involved with England, whether on a part-time basis with the Under-21s, or with the full team after Roy (Hodgson) has retired."
