Redknapp pledges future to Spurs

Tottenham Hotspur

Spurs boss Harry Redknapp insists he won't leave during the current campaign, despite the speculation surrounding his future.

Redknapp has been heavily linked with the vacant England manager’s job following the resignation of Fabio Capello.

The FA have confirmed Stuart Pearce will take temporary charge of the national side for the home friendly against Holland on February 29 and any decision on the next permanent boss is unlikely to be made until after that fixture.

Redknapp has hinted he would consider taking the job on a part-time basis for the Euro 2012 tournament, although he admits he doesn’t see any way to successfully combine club and country management on a long-term basis.

The Spurs boss has also stated the FA should make a decision in May, after the regular season has come to a close, and Redknapp insists he will not leave Spurs in the middle of the season, with the north London club currently involved in the title race and the FA Cup.

“I can only concentrate on Tottenham,” Redknapp is quoted as saying in the Independent. “I haven’t spoken to anybody else about the England job, apart from people from newspapers.

“I just want to concentrate on the job here. We have had a great season, I wouldn’t want the players to start thinking ‘what is he doing, is he going, is he staying?’ I am here and I have got to be here until the end of the season whatever happens.”
