Tottenham boss Redknapp: Time for English coach for England

Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp says it's time an Englishman took charge of the national team.

Redknapp thinks another foreign manager would show English football to be in a bad state.

"Could you imagine an Englishman managing the Italian national team? It doesn't happen," he said.

"The Germans are the same, they have a German manager. We've ended up with two foreign managers. This guy [Capello] has a fantastic record at club level. But look, we've had a go with it now.

"When he finally moves on, in four years or whatever, surely there has to be a young guy or somebody in this country. Surely we have to find a manager from England, an English manager.

"I'm not talking about a Scottish manager or an Irish manager, I'm talking about an English manager because this is where we're from, this is our country.

"We should be able to produce someone who can manage the England football team and let's be honest, they can't do any worse than what they've [Eriksson and Capello] done."
