Redknapp heads next England manager betting as Capello tests FA

Fabio Capello has resigned from his job as England manager. The news came out on a dramatic Wednesday which had earlier seen Harry Redknapp acquitted of tax evasion charges at Southwark Crown Court. That news had seen Redknapp clipped into odds on favourite in the betting for the Next England Manager and Paddy Power go best price 8/15 on Redknapp being named as Capello's replacement.

There had a spurt of activity on Monday morning following the news that Fabio Capello had publicly disagreed with the FA's decision to rid John Terry of the captain's armband. England supporters are used to the traditional pre-summer tournament meltdown, usually triggered by an injury to a top player or a tabloid story which puts the mockers on a player, but in the snowy month of February, a good 5 months ahead of Euro 2012, this latest crisis seems much sooner than usual!

John Terry was stripped of the England captaincy last week by the FA until his court case for alleged racist remarks has been heard. With the hearing not due until July and after the European Championships, there was some fervent betting activity on who would be the England Captain for Euro 2012 with Steven Gerrard the odds on favourite.

The latest twist on the story is that when interviewed on Italian television at the weekend, Fabio Capello claimed that he 'absolutely' didn't agree with the FA's decision. With the interview held in Italian, there is some debate as to whether he meant this in the context but if Capello has publicly disagreed with his employers there could well be ramifications. It was widely reported that Capello wasn't going to drop Terry from captaining duties when the news about the court case broke and this weekend's interview seems to have confirmed this. The stance from the Italian seems odd considering he was quick to take the armband from Terry two years ago after the Chelsea players' alleged affair with Wayne Bridge's ex-girlfriend.

Capello's England contract was to expire after Euro 2012 where England are 8/1 fourth favourites in the betting to lift the trophy. With a reported salaray of £6m a year it would have been a bold move for the FA to cut their losses before the summer tournament, but seemingly the Italian made the decision for them by handing in his resignation following a meeting with the FA at Wembley on Wednesday.

The betting for next England manager has Harry Redknapp the short priced favourite, with Paddy Power going odds of 8/15. There's no doubt that Redknapp is the media's first choice for the role but it's not cut and dried as to whether the FA share the same thought. Redknapp was deemed to be not guilty by the jury in his tax evasion trial but the heat might be too much for the FA to handle. Add to this Redknapp's current plight in the Premier League with Tottenham the timing would be poor for any decision to be made on his immediate future as far as Spurs are concerned.

Second favourite in the betting is Jose Mourinho, who had reportedly announced a desire to leave Real Madrid at the end of the season and the Portuguese former Chelsea and Inter manager is 9/1 with Paddy Power. West Brom manager Roy Hodgson is available to back at 11/1 with Paddy Power. The likeable former Switzerland boss would tick plenty of the FA's boxes when it comes to being England manager, having taken an unfancied Switzerland to the World Cup finals and had a spell as manager of Inter Milan. Hodgson also took Fulham to a Europa League final but his stock may have dropped following an ill-fated stint as Liverpool boss.

Next England Manager Odds

8/15 Harry Redknapp
9/1 Jose Mourinho
11/1 Roy Hodgson
14/1 Alan Pardew
16/1 Martin O'Neill
16/1 Arsene Wenger
20/1 BAR
