Queens Park Rangers manager Harry Redknapp has aimed a sensational blast at the England national team after their dull 1-0 win over Norway on Wednesday evening, the Daily Mail reports.
The former Tottenham Hotspur boss, who was once a strong candidate to take the job of coaching the national team after Fabio Capello quit the position back in 2012, believes that half the players ‘don’t give a toss’ and that the fans are fed up of watching their country play.
A late Wayne Rooney penalty sealed a 1-0 win for Roy Hodgson’s men in another disappointing display just months after their calamitious World Cup exit at the group stages.
With tougher opposition coming up in their next game against Switzerland, England fans could have cause to be concerned by their team’s continued lack of ability to break sides down, as well as a perceived lack of desire from Redknapp’s point of view.
With long-serving veterans such as Frank Lampard and Steven Gerrard calling time on their international careers after this summer’s World Cup, this was a chance for some young players to impress for the Three Lions and stake their claims for a place, but Redknapp was far from impressed by any of them.
“It is disappointment after disappointment. Half the players don’t give a toss. The fans can’t be bothered to watch them,” Redknapp wrote for the Sun.
“I don’t blame the supporters for not being interested in England at the moment. Why should they be?
“We were told this is the start of a new era. Trust me, I hope so, I really do, but I’m not holding my breath because it will only get harder for England with the way things are in club football.
“And what possible value is there in a total non-event against the worst Norway team we have seen for years when the supporters are still sore from the World Cup shambles?”
