Harry Redknapp has told Sol Campbell that the fact the showers where not working, 'is part of the attraction of being here.'
Redknapp said, 'We've had them all at our training ground - Paul Merson, Teddy Sheringham and Patrik Berger. They have all been used to the best but this is Portsmouth and they just got on with it.
'They've roughed it but that is part of the attraction of being here, I think. I said to Sol that if Bobby Moore could sit in a dug-out at Oxford City where he was manager then we can all do it.
'Fans can't believe we've brought players of his quality after the load of crap that was brought in last pre-season.
'The team I took over here (last December) was a problem. Anyone who has followed this club will tell you it wasn't a good team. We performed a miracle scraping out of relegation, didn't we?'
Harry has signed some top players since then. He looks set to miss out on both Martins (quoted as saying he wants to go to Newcastle, although the club have yet to agree a fee) and Anelka to Bolton(quoted as saying he wants to go to Bolton and the club have made an offer.)
Portsmouth owner 'Sacha' is working on the Anelka deal, while Peter Storrie works on the Martins deal. Milan is trying to get Petrov as Redknapp is working on a deal for Muntari and Korroman.
Despite Portsmouth saying that Muntari cost too much, Vital Pompey understands that the club expect to sign Muntari and Korroman this week.
