Pedro Mendes has completed his move to Rangers, who have signed 'the legend' for £3m on a 3-year contract.
I am gutted by this, much like most others will be, but as said before in other articles what can you do? I will not really go over what I have said before as these thoughts can be found in other articles written today I will just leave it at 'I am gutted'...
This is what Peter Storrie and Harry Redknapp had to say on the Pompey Site about his departure.
Storrie: 'we're sorry to see good players go, particularly one like Pedro.
'He's not one we wanted to move on, but as a club we understand that we have to balance the books and that Pedro wants to be playing regularly.
'Glasgow Rangers are a big club and that was an attraction to Pedro.
'He's a quality player and has been a great servant to the club. It was his goal that started the run that kept us in the Premier League in 2006.'
Redknapp: 'I'll miss Pedro. He was a great player for me and a great person.
'He was probably more responsible than anyone else for keeping us up two seasons ago.'
Without you Pedro we would not be where we are now, god only knows where we would be lurking now!
I am just glad that I personally got a chance to say a kind of goodbye to him this summer. My sister-in-law got to have a photo with him after the Exeter game, and I got to shake his hand and exchange a few words...
I for one will be eternally grateful to you for what you did for this club, it is just a shame that we could not keep you and saw fit to reject offers for Papa Bouba Diop but accepted them for you!
PLAY UP POMPEY!
