Redknapp fully focused on Tottenham

Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp says he is not letting talk about the England job phase him.

The Spurs boss is being heavily linked with the Three Lions role after Fabio Capello quit last week but he insists he is solely focused on what is ahead for his club who take on League One Stevenage in the FA Cup fifth round on Sunday.

"It is not a distraction, not at all," Redknapp said. "I have just been thinking about Stevenage all week.

"My focus has to be on trying to get Tottenham as high as I can in the table.

"I can't start thinking about anything else really."

He added: "If you were managing a team that was struggling and you thought 'this lot aint too clever', it certainly would be different, but I am at a great club with good players and I haven't got any problems here.

"I get on well with the chairman. We have a good relationship, probably as good a relationship as he has had with any manager.

"We haven't got any problems here and at the moment there nothing else has happened.

"I've not spoken to anybody. I'm not going to rule myself out but I've not been ruled in either."
