But that was one of the reasons I didn’t see any harm in making an open statement. Everyone at Tottenham knew how I felt about their backing for me in a crisis. I didn’t think that bond could be damaged by the honest admission that an English manager is always flattered to be linked with managing England. I still don’t see why that came as a slap in the face to them. Some people think I became distracted once the speculation around England arose, but I don’t agree.

Look at how long David Moyes had to wait at Everton before getting a chance to manage Manchester United.
