Harry Redknapp: Backed for England job
KEANE: HARRY'S THE MAN FOR ENGLAND
Republic of Ireland skipper Robbie Keane is convinced Harry Redknapp will be the next England manager.
The 64-year-old Tottenham boss is the overwhelming favourite to land the post vacated by Fabio Capello and Keane, who played under Redknapp at White Hart Lane, can only see one possible solution.
He said: "There is certainly only one candidate at the moment. Me personally, I think it's only going to happen that he's going to take over.
"The whole of England I think wants him, and certainly the players do, so I certainly think that will be the case.
"Whether that's in the next month or so or at the end of the season, I am not too sure. But I am sure the Spurs fans wouldn't be too happy with him leaving because of the job he has done there."
If Redknapp were to be offered the job, and accept it, before the summer, he would lead England into the Euro 2012 finals, in which Keane and his Republic team-mates will join them in Poland and Ukraine.
However, with Spurs flying high in the Barclays Premier League - they currently sit third in the table despite Sunday's 5-2 derby defeat at Arsenal - the former Bournemouth, West Ham, Portsmouth and Southampton manager would face a tough decision over his future.
