Redknapp slams ´slow´ FA

5 May 2012 05:47

Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp has hit out at the FA over the time taken to appoint a new England manager.

The 65-year-old was widely viewed as the favourite to succeed Fabio Capello to the Three Lions hot seat before the governing body this week opted for West Brom manager Roy Hodgson.

Despite accepting the decision and wishing Hodgson all the best in the role, Redknapp has criticised the FA for taking so long to approach a candidate, and has conceded the speculation may well have derailed Spurs’ season to an extent.

"It did drag on," Redknapp told reporters.

"I don't know why they didn't do it six weeks ago? What was the big problem? West Brom weren't going to go down. It was non-stop speculation.

"I think (chairman Daniel Levy) thinks (the speculation) might have (affected us), (assistant manager) Kevin Bond thinks it could have had an effect.

"He thought there was a change, but I didn't see it like that."

The former West Ham boss also insisted he is happy at White Hart Lane and dismissed suggestions he is looking for a move away.

"I've got no thoughts with moving anywhere else," he said.

"I don't feel any different now to a few years ago. I don't feel tired and I've got a good job here.

"But I don't want to make it seem that I am chasing Daniel, asking him to give me a new contract. I'm not."
