Gareth Bale believes that Harry Redknapp should take the England job, if he is offered it, as it is one of those lifetime opportunities

Tottenham star Gareth Bale has revealed that he believes that Harry Redknapp should take the England job if he is offered it.

The Spurs boss is overwhelming favourite to take the role, with the FA looking to appoint someone towards the end of the season.

“We all want Harry to stay,” Bale told The Sun. “But he is a great manager and if England do come calling it’s one of those lifetime opportunities that you just can’t turn down.

“I wouldn’t blame him for going. You never know if that opportunity will ever come around again.

“Clearly it’s going to be his choice and only he knows whether he wants the job or not. If it is the dream job for him.”
