Redknapp has told close friends he is even thinking of pulling out altogether and jetting off on holiday instead, says the Sunday Mirror.
The Tottenham Hotspur manager – who at one point was the bookies’ favourite to become England boss – has told TV chiefs it will be impossible for him to discuss Roy Hodgson’s game tactics.
A friend said: “Harry feels it would be unfair to be on TV talking about what Roy Hodgson is doing right and wrong during the tournament.
“Everything he said would be scrutinised and analysed. Harry felt that would put unfair pressure on Roy and the team.
“It is an impossible position, really. That’s why he told the BBC he’d rather not be part of the England coverage.”
