Former good and England manager Steve McClaren has thrown his weight behind the relentless campaign to get renowned wheeler-dealer Harry Redknapp installed as national team coach.
Nottingham Forest was the scene of his inglorious return to life in England, a haggard-looking McClaren leading the Championship side to a club record seventy-two defeats in three months.
He said of the permanently irritated Tottenham Hotspur manager: “Harry’s credentials are as good as anybody else’s.
“I say the England manager has to be experienced, he has to have European experience, and he has to have won something. Harry fits the bill in all of those.”
It is understood that McClaren then cleared his throat in an exaggerated manner, quickly combed his hair and grabbed his lapels.
