Pompey refute Redknapp financial claims

Pompey refute Redknapp financial claims

Pompey have moved to distance themselves from Harrys claims of financial instability, this is either to steady fraying nerves among fans, or anger at Harry's usual martyrdom claims.
I'm not in the know, but we are obviously tightening belts, but the club insinuates that it is not as bad as Harry makes out, there are no names to 'club sources' so far, but the backlash has no doubt begun

I suspect we will never know how bad or how rosy things are in that respect...

Heard this morning that a Storrie may be close to finding a buyer for the club.

Yep, just heard Peter Storrie on Radio 5 saying that the financial claims are untrue. Harry wanted to go and that's all there was to it. Which to be fair, is what we all knew anyway. If we'd been that hard up for 5 million, we'd have sold Diarra before deadline day, and got double that.

For all his detractors I believe Storrie is correct on the situation - Harry wanted to go 100%. The most significant thing I've heard today is Daniel Levy being interviewed and saying that he had known Harry for sometime and had several 'conversations' with him over the years. Harry has shown himself to be so self-interested - all this calling the mdia at midnight and taking about the £5 million deal thats so good for Pompey is typical Redknapp PR spin to make him smell of roses - notice how he's claiming all the credit for Spuds win today. Don't give up on Sacha - from all I've heard he's always been straight with Redknapp - doesn't look like Harry had repaid his faith.

So Harry has gone and if I'd been offered a 3mil wage increase, I wouldn't have given it a second thought either. But what I would not have done is try to bamboozle people saying he went for the good of the club. F--K off Harry and don't come back!

How the man can expect any football fan to accept this drivel is anyone's guess. Portsmouth have heard such Redknappesque versions of the world before. But I would think this is the last straw. Why couldn't he just admit he went to put more money in the bank account before his retirement?

yep a bit of spin by Harry, patronising really, he went for the money, no need to say pompey got a good deal.

I don't but the 'we needed the money'. I read it as Harry wanted to go & the best deal that Ps could was to get £5m.

without a doubt he went for the money.....no question.......he has gone way down in my estimation as a manager now........good luck in getting another good one to take charge... ...I think the best man for you now is Big Sam.....
