Harry Redknapp backed for England by Milan Mandaric
At the start of the week, Harry Redknapp was in the dock after being charged with tax evasion, although the 64-year-old is now the nation’s favourite to be England manager.

Redknapp was found not guilty on Wednesday and Fabio Capello’s resignation later that day means that the Tottenham manager has been backed by virtually everyone to replace the Italian on a permanent basis.
Milan Mandaric was the other high profile figure who was acquitted at Southwark Crown Court on Wednesday and he thinks Redknapp is the obvious choice to take charge of the Three Lions.
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.”
Harry Redknapp has so far refused to discuss the possibility of him taking over the national team, aside from to previously say that it would be a hard job to turn down if the FA came calling.
Other names in the frame include Roy Hodgson and Guus Hiddink, although Redknapp is the unanimous favourite to take charge.
