Capello backs Allardyce and Redknapp

Fabio Capello believes that Sam Allardyce and Harry Redknapp are leading the list of potential candidates to replace him when he steps down as England manager in 2012.
The Football Association have confirmed that they intend to replace Capello with an Englishman when the Italian's contract ends after the European Championships.
When asked which English managers are performing best, the Italian said: "In this moment Allardyce and Redknapp are doing very well because they have different players, they have good style and get results with them. It is important for a coach to understand which type of players they manage and find the best style."
Tottenham manager Redknapp is the bookmakers' favourite after he brought Champions League football to White Hart Lane, while Blackburn manager Allardyce has won many plaudits during his nine-year spell in top-flight management.
