Manchester United star Wayne Rooney has said that Harry Redknapp is the perfect candidate for the vacant England manager job.

Former England manager Fabio Capello quit his post in acrimonious circumstances after falling out with the English football Association and its board over the captaincy of the England national team.

The English FA removed John Terry from the post of being the captain of the England national team, which seems to have undermined the status of manager Fabio Capello. After questioning the decision by the board to remove the Chelsea captain, Fabio Capello stepped down from his post.

Now, there are a number of speculation regarding the next candidate for the England manager post. Many believe that Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp is the perfect candidate for being the England manager and Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney is one of them.

Both Wayne Rooney and his fellow teammate Rio Ferdinand tweeted by saying that Harry Redknapp is the perfect candidate partly because of his managerial experience and achievements, and partly because of his nationality. Jack Wilshere has come out in support of Fabio Capello by saying that he is extremely thankful for the debut the Italian gave to him.

"Gutted capello has quit. Good guy and top coach. Got to be english to replace him. Harry redknapp for me," Rooney said on Twitter. "Shocked about news on Fabio Capello … gutted to be honest, gave me my 1st cap and believed in me! Thank you Mr Capello! #GreatManager," Jack Wilshere said on Twitter.

The English football Association have announced that Stuart Pearce will be the caretaker manager of the England national team for the upcoming friendly against Holland. The FA are expected to make a decision shortly after the Holland friendly, especially with the Euro 2012 looming ahead.
