Harry Redknapp will be BBC pundit for Euro 2012
Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp may have missed out on the England job, but he'll be getting involved with Euro 2012 none-the-less.
The BBC have announced that the 65-year-old will be among their pundits for their coverage of the tournament being co-hosted by Poland and Ukraine.
The decision to bring Redknapp into the punditry team, where he will be joined by Jurgen Klinsmann, Clarence Seedorf and David James, has the potential to create some intriguing analysis.
Redknapp was the favourite among bookmakers and the media to be leading England at this summer's tournament, but was overlooked in favour of West Brom manager Roy Hodgson.
His role with the BBC promises an insight, particularly if things don't go well with the Three Lions, as to how Redknapp would have done things differently had the FA opted for him instead.
As Hodgson said at his unveiling on Tuesday, "we have unwittingly become rivals."
Speaking about joining the BBC's coverage, which will be presented by Gary Lineker, Redknapp said: "I'm looking forward to working with the BBC team again."
