Who will replace Fabio Capello when he steps down as England manager
Fabio Capello will remain with England until after Euro 2012, but the FA have no-one in mind to replace the Italian.
There were intense rumours on Thursday evening that Fabio Capello was set to quit as England manager but the FA have confirmed that the Italian will see out his contract, which expires after Euro 2012.
However, the FA chairman, David Bernstein, has dampened speculation over the identity of the man who will replace Capello by claiming that he cannot confirm the next England manager will be English.
"I cannot confirm that he will be English," said Bernstein. "I think there is a desire for the manager to be English but I wouldn't want to close the situation and we have to judge it at the time.
"I would not say at this stage that he has to be English, I would say at this stage it would be preferable.
"It is an important element, but not the only criteria, I clearly recognise there is a desire in this country to have an English manager when Fabio leaves.
Harry Redknapp is the bookies favourite to replace Capello and is a best price of 6/4, at William Hill
, to be the next England manager.
Stuart Pearce is 6/1 with Hills, who make Gareth Southgate an 8/1 chance to be the next man to coach the national team. Leading foreign managers Guus Hiddink and Arsene Wenger are 20/1 to replace Capello.
