Sir Alex Ferguson has revealed that he is not allowed to give his opinion on who he thinks should be the next England boss. After previously suggesting that Harry Redknapp would be great for the job, the FA wrote to Ferguson and asked him not to discuss it any more.

“The Premier League has written to me asking me not to talk about the England manager’s job,” he said.

When asked why he had received the letter, he replied: “I’ve absolutely no idea. I’m not supposed to discuss it.”
