Bernstein talks up Redknapp

Football Association chairman David Bernstein has made it clear that Harry Redknapp has caught his eye as having all the credentials to become the new England manager.

• Spurs blog: Harry for England?
• Palmer: Five-star Spurs

And Bernstein has also insisted that the FA does not fear having to pay a sizeable fee, and a salary to go with it, to get the man they want to replace Fabio Capello. It will not "penny pinch" to get its man.

Bernstein said: "We live in the real world and understand the hype. The guy (Redknapp) has done amazingly. Really we think he is a fine manager and he's English.

"I am not concerned about the hype. This job is still so attractive to many people that we will get interest from serious parties despite this particular hype. I'm not bothered about it, it's a fact of life.

"I think it's a magnificent job, I really do. Clearly it's incredibly challenging. There have been problems in the past, maybe there will be some in the future but I think it's a wonderful job.

"The fact that we haven't had huge success as an international side in the past years is the opportunity. He hasn't got to win the World Cup to be regarded as successful, maybe getting us to a semi-final or something like that.

"Everything is in place with St George's Park (the national football centre) opening later this year maybe it's easier and there are more positives for someone to go forward than in the past.

"Age for the new man isn't an issue. I'm 68 so I don't think for the right people age should be a barrier. The right people will have the energy and it's the energy that is important.

"You can have someone who is pretty old at 40 and someone who is very young at 60 odd. It's not about 50 or 60 matches in a year so in a way you could say it's more suited to an older person than club management where the demands are absolutely incessant.

"Since I have been here I have been absolutely consistent that yes, there may well be a preference for an English or British manager but we will not confine our search to that. We want the right person but clearly there is a national preference.

"A quick decision isn't necessarily a good decision so let's use the time sensibly. We don't want to leave it to May though, that's for sure.

"We won't be penny pinching on this, whatever our views on past salaries might be. We will pay what we need to pay. We will have to assess the position with any candidates."
