Tottenham boss Redknapp happy flying flag for English coaches

Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp is proud to be only the fifth Englishman to lead a club into the Champions League. Redknapp's personal achievement comes a week after fellow English manager Roy Hodgson guided Fulham to the Europa League final and Steve McClaren led FC Twente to the Dutch title.

The Tottenham manager said: "One or two people ridiculed me because I said there were good English coaches and there are.

"If they are just given the right jobs with the right players then they can do just as good a job as anybody else, no doubt about that.

"There are some terrific coaches in this country at all levels and it's a crying shame that more of them don't get the chance to manage at a bigger club."
