No surprises really - not guilty!
Today, after a 2-week plus trial, a case that has spanned 5-years and cost a staggering £8m concluded with both Harry Redknapp and Milan Mandaric 'cleared of all charges' in their tax evasion case...
It could also be revealed for the first time that both Mandaric and Storrieteller were cleared of 'dodging' tax on £600,000 in a previous court case last year.
This whole trial has summed up everything that is bad about football, with it seemingly highlighting that it is almost commonplace - apparently? - for managers to get bonus related cuts from player sales, which must place huge question marks over integrity within the game, even more so as integrity in football has been under question for donkies years really...
An owner cannot own two club due to concerns over the integrity of this, yet managers can get a cut of transfer fees, so where's the difference really?
Had it been you or I on trial I would be absolutely amazed if the same outcome, and conclusion from the jury, would have been reached!
The whole thing stinks if you ask me but what can you do a court has found them innocent so innocent they are...
