Everyone has already decided that Redknapp can just take over the England job once the season is finished and pretty much treat it like he's the manager of a summer camp, so everything he says about any English player obviously means he wants them to play for England. The rubber faced media darling said:
Yes and while you're at it you should probably take David Beckham because he puts in wicked crosses, and then Alan Shearer because he has a cracking right foot. Or maybe dig up Stanley Matthews and use him like a remote control robot. You may not remember but about a month ago Paul Scholes was retired. That means he's very old and can't run around very much - useful traits for an international footballer."You'd love to have Paul Scholes in the Euros,""He'd be in your team, he's that good. He plays like a Spaniard, he can play like Xavi and Iniesta. He doesn't give the ball away."
Actually Paul Scholes has been pretty great since he started playing again so I guess this makes sense. I just pretend to be really smug and mean sometimes so that I appear cool. All I really want is attention. *looks off into distance*
