QPR boss Harry Redknapp believes that the English national team doesn’t know how to play football according to BBC Sport.

This comes after England’s under 21 side crash out of the European Championships in Israel without gaining a single point.

Redknapp believes that young English players aren’t coached in the right way and that this needs to change in order for the national team to become successful.

“The problem is that the England team has no pattern of play. We don’t have the kids coached the same way – the right way – from a young age,” said Redknapp.

The former Portsmouth boss also said he believed that the last time the national team appeared to be moving in the right direction was when Glenn Hoddle was in charge and backed the former Spurs manager to become the next coach of the England under 21’s.

Redknapp himself was heavily linked with the England senior job last year when Fabio Capello resigned.

Despite press speculation, Redknapp was not given the job, with Roy Hodgson made England boss by the FA.

Since then, Redknapp has moved clubs and is currently at recently relegated QPR who will begin life in the Championship next season.

Redknapp was thought to be unhappy at QPR and contemplated leaving the club but he has since confirmed that he will be staying with the Hoops.
