Milan Mandaric backs Harry Redknapp for England
Friday 10 February 2012
Milan Mandaric believes there is no better candidate to manage England than Harry Redknapp.
Sheffield Wednesday chairman Mandaric and Tottenham manager Redknapp were together at Portsmouth and Mandaric believes his former colleague is the right man to succeed Fabio Capello as England boss.
Mandaric and Redknapp were both cleared of tax evasion charges relating to their time at Portsmouth on Wednesday, the same day Capello resigned as England manager over the Football Association's decision to take the national captaincy off Chelsea defender John Terry.
Mandaric has now backed his friend Redknapp to become the next manager of England.
He told Sky Sports News: "I don't think there is a better man than Harry Redknapp to take over England.
"I possibly shouldn't say that because it is not my job to talk about managers who are employees and are very happy with their job.
"I want England to be successful because I am a big part of English football."
