Glenn Hoddle is convinced that Tottenham Hotspur boss Harry Redknapp will become England manager in time for this summer’s European championships.

Hoddle spent three years as England boss between 1996 and 1999 and led the national side to the second round of the 1998 World Cup, losing to Argentina on penalties.

The 54-year-old, who endured a difficult two-year spell at Spurs before he was sacked in 2003, believes Redknapp is keen to take up the England position in the wake of Fabio Capello’s surprise departure and fully expects him to be handed the role at the end of the season.

“I expect he [Redknapp] will get the job. He will probably be offered that at the end of the season and he will eventually take the team to Euro 2012,” Hoddle told Sky Sports.

“The only problem the Football Association have got is that Tottenham will want to keep hold of Redknapp because he’s done such a good job.

“But I’m sure at the end of the season, if Harry wants the job – and I believe he does – he will take it and will be leading England into the Euros this summer.”

Glenn Hoddle was speaking in his role as 20-20 Football’s technical director ahead of the Elite Legends Cup tournament at Loftus Road on 20 May. To find out more, visit 20-20football.com
