England supporters have rallied around former QPR boss Harry Redknapp to succeed Sam Allardyce as the permanent manager of the national side.

England supporters have called for Harry Redknapp to be appointed as England boss.

The former Spurs manager was a frontrunner for the job four years ago only to lose out to Roy Hodgson.

The 69-year-old was subsequently fired at White Hart Lane after a poor run of results and moved to Queens Park Rangers, where he enjoyed both relegation and promotion in his two-and-a-half years at the helm.

With Gareth Southgate having overseen the first of his four games as interim boss, England fans have backed Redknapp, claiming that ‘he should have been manager last time’ and that ‘he’s the best English manager for a long time’.

Arsene Wenger, Ryan Giggs and Glenn Hoddle were also mooted as potential replacements for the departed Sam Allardyce, with some claiming that the latter ‘wasn’t given the time’ during his previous stint.

Hoddle managed England between 1996 and 1999, overseeing a win ratio of 60.71% but received widespread condemnation for controversial remarks relating to disabled people.
