So much for Jordan staying...
The understanding that Joe Jordan had 'shaken hands on an agreement' to stay with Pompey has proved premature, as Pompey have officially confirmed that he has left the club!
What a massive, massive blow this is - losing his experience, which would have proved vital to Tony Adams, is another devastating development.
This is a statement from the Pompey Site...
PLAY UP POMPEY!
JORDAN LEAVES POMPEY
Joe Jordan has parted company with Portsmouth Football Club.
It ends the 56-year-old Scot's four-year spell as a coach at Fratton Park.
Jordan joined Pompey in the summer of 2004 as one of Harry Redknapp's coaches and briefly had a spell as caretaker manager.
Jordan, a former Manchester United, AC Milan and Leeds striker, played in three World Cups for Scotland, before managing Bristol City, Stoke and Hearts.
Portsmouth Football Club would like to thank Joe for his significant contribution during four successful years at Fratton Park and wish him well for the future.
Blues manager Tony Adams is hoping to unveil his new team of coaching staff next week.
