Redknapp translates for his old friend Roy

Roy Hodgson shocked the world of football today by announcing the appointment of wide boy Harry Redknapp as translator.

The appointment fuels speculation that the England squad failed to understand a word that Hodgson said. The Croydon born boss, who has managed all over the world and speaks 34 different languages was mocked by the Sun newspaper for his pronunciation of certain letters and words.

Redknapp was cleared of tax evasion relating to his time as Portsmouth manager, and was made favourite for the head coach role when Fabio Capello resigned. Capello was unhappy that the FA never consulted him over the decision to sack John Terry as captain. Terry faces a court case over claims he was racist to QPR defender Anton Ferdinand.
Instead of Redknapp, the FA appointed West Brom boss Hodgson just four weeks before Euro 2012, where England went out on penalties in the quarter-final to Italy.

The FA refused to comment on the claim that Redknapp had asked to be paid Swiss Francs cash-in-hand and luncheon vouchers, and also for his name not to be listed on any official documents.

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