Harry won't rule out England

22 Nov 2007 - 15:14:43

Portsmouth manager Harry Redknapp does not expect to be approached to become the new England manager but has refused to rule himself out of the running to replace Steve McClaren.

The Football Association have started looking for a new head coach after sacking McClaren following England's failure to reach Euro 2008.

But although Redknapp hinted he would be interested in the role, he doesn't expect to be called upon by the FA's chief executive Brian Barwick.

"Anybody would love to manage the country, sure, but I wouldn't see it coming my way to be truthful," he told Sky Sports News.

However, Redknapp claims he is 100 per cent focused on his present role at Fratton Park and the weekend clash with managerless Birmingham City.

"It's all ifs and buts," he added. "All I am worried about is going to Birmingham on Saturday and getting three points.

"Who knows who they will appoint now? I have seen (Russia coach) Guus Hiddink's name being mentioned.

"He couldn't get a result in Israel on Saturday when he really wanted it so I don't know."
