The Tottenham boss is set to miss out on the England manager's job with Roy Hodgson poised to be appointed.
But Redknapp feels Hodgson will have a tough job on his hands.
He was quoted by The Sun as saying: "England football is very important for the country but I don't know if it is as important any more to the players. That is the problem.
"People like Bobby Moore, when they were picked, would have walked there."
He added: "But for some of the younger players it's more about club than country, which is a shame."
Redknapp also claimed he would be happy to take a step down in the future after missing out on the job he has seemingly coveted for so long.
"Managing England must be fantastic as well with all those top players and the top tournaments," he said.
"But I would enjoy being manager of somewhere like Poole Town in a few years' time, going back to Bournemouth or wherever, I would still be enjoying it."
