London, Jun 29 (ANI): Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp has said that he would love to coach the Three Lions, and added that Fabio Capello's successor should be from England.

Redknapp is the people's favourite to replace Fabio Capello after the Italian's Three Lions flopped at the World Cup.

Redknapp, who guided Spurs to fourth in the Premier League last term, said: "I'm English and who wouldn't want to manage England."

"There's not an Englishman - whether it's me, Roy Hodgson or Sam Allardyce - who would turn the job down because it's our country and we want to manage our country. No one is ever going to turn that job down," The Sun quoted him, as saying.

"Could you imagine an Englishman managing the Italian national team? It doesn't happen. The Germans are the same. They have a German manager. We've ended up with two foreign managers," he said.

"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 surely there has to be somebody in this country, surely we have to find a manager from England, an English manager," Redkhapp added.

FA councillor and West Ham co-owner David Gold said: "Harry has clearly shown himself to be a top boss and would have to be on any list of British candidates. Yes, of course he's the People's Choice. You can't argue against that." (ANI)
