Frank Lampard on Redknapp for the England job Quotes of the week
Bolton boss Owen Coyle claimed earlier this week Redknapp was the right man to succeed Fabio Capello when the Italian leaves the role after Euro 2012.
Redknapp has often been linked with the England job and Lampard believes his uncle is the best man for the role.
"Harry's the best choice. For me, it's got to be him," Lampard told The Sun.
Proud"Obviously, I'd be very proud if he is the next England boss because of the family connection.
"If we're looking for a home-grown manager next, Harry's definitely the one.
"Six months ago people would have said Roy Hodgson, he was the favourite but not now.
"Look where he's taking Tottenham right now.
"Who can argue with this week's performance against the European champions Inter Milan?
"And remember what he did at Portsmouth and West Ham before that."
