Harry Redknapp said on Thursday morning he has "not even thought about" becoming the next England manager. The Tottenham boss, who was cleared on Wednesday of tax evasion charges, is the firm favourite to replace Fabio Capello, who resigned after talks with Football Association chairman David Bernstein. Redknapp spoke as he left his home near Poole on Thursday, and played down talk of him stepping in to guide the team at Euro 2012. He said: "I've not even thought about it. I've got a job to do. I've got a big game on Saturday for Tottenham. Tottenham is my focus." Tottenham face Newcastle at the weekend, and Redknapp insists all his attention is on that fixture. Asked whether he could help out England this summer, Redknapp said: "I've never thought about it. "They (the Football Association) will make whatever decision they want to make. Hopefully it'll be the right decision for the country but my focus is all on Tottenham." Capello dramatically resigned over the FA's decision to go over his head and John Terry of the England captaincy. The FA took that action after Terry's trial for allegedly racially abusing Anton Ferdinand was scheduled for July, after the Euro 2012 finals. Terry denies the offence. Although Capello was known to be frustrated by the FA's move, the Italian's decision to walk away caught many, including Redknapp, by surprise. Redknapp said: "I was shocked. I was surprised. I didn't expect that to happen. "We knew he was going to leave in the summer. I didn't expect it to happen now." Redknapp has been in charge at Tottenham since October 2008, when he took over a team sitting bottom of the Premier League. He soon lifted the team clear of danger and has since led them to a Champions League quarter-final, while they are involved in the Premier League title battle this season. "Tottenham have been fantastic to me," Redknapp said from his car today, as he stopped for waiting reporters. "The fans last week at the Wigan game...it was incredible the reception they gave me. "It wouldn't be right for them, (for me) to focus on anything else but Tottenham. "That's my only interest, is Tottenham Hotspur."
