Harry Redknapp said the FA always make the right decision – and they didn’t choose him
COMPARE and contrast these Harry Redknapp quotes:
Talking about the FA on February 10, 2012. Spurs manager Redknapp is red-hot favourite to be the next England manager:
“They’ll make whatever decision they want to make and I’m sure it will be the right one.”
Talking about the FA in his autobiography on October 7, 2013. QPR manger Redknapp is no longer in the Premier League:
“I wouldn’t trust the FA to show me a good manager if their lives depended on it. How would they know? What clubs have they ever run? Who do they speak to who really knows the game? This isn’t about them giving the England job to me or Roy Hodgson, but English football being run by people who really haven’t got a clue. And they get to pick the England manager!”
Any regrets over choosing Hodgson at the FA, do you suppose?
