Wayne Rooney: On the scoresheet at White Hart Lane

Harry Redknapp performed a dramatic u-turn today, worthy of a cockney cab driver or posh Prime Minister, and accepted the England job even though the Football Association haven't offered it to him.

Speaking at White Hart lane after Man United beat Spurs 3-1, Redknapp said "Yeah fair enough you got me - it's time to take the England job because it's affecting the spurs players form and my main concern is the players, fans and chairman of Tottenham Hotspur".

In recent weeks since Fabio Capello resigned as England boss, Harry Redknapp has been the bookies and FA's number one choice after winning a court case over alleged tax fraud. The main sticking point was of course his role as manager of Spurs, who he had taken to 3rd in the Premier League.

In the first game after the Capello announcement, Spurs thrashed Newcastle 5-0, but a 0-0 draw in the FA Cup with lowly Stevenage followed. In the North London derby last week, the lillywhites led Arsenal 2-0 before collapsing to a 5-2 defeat. The result against Manchester United leaves Spurs eleven points behind United in second.

Journalists questioned Harry's sudden about turn but he answered "This is absolutely not because the wheels are about to fall off and everyone can see that I've taken Spurs as far as they can go without a massive injection of cash from a mega-rich chairman like my old mate Milan."

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
