Milan On: Harry and Bungs

Milan On: Harry and Bungs

Milan Mandaric has jumped to the defence of Harry Redknapp claiming that Harry isn`t even involved in transfer deals.

A newspaper this morning have claimed that Portsmouth are one of eight clubs to be named in the Stevens enquiry.

Milan had said;

'It's upsetting because I worked with Harry Redknapp for seven-and-a-half years and not once was he involved in doing a deal,' he told the News of the World.

'Every single one was conducted by myself and my chief executive.

'Harry's only involvement came when I asked for his opinion on the price being asked for a player and nine times out of 10 he would say: 'It's too high'.

'I dealt with many agents and managers and everything was done in the correct manner. All the money we paid agents went through the correct channels.

'I was shocked by the entirely unjustified half-suggestions posed by the Panorama programme towards Harry. He is my friend and I can't stand the rumours and innuendo surrounding him.

'All he ever did was to tell me the players he wanted and I took it from there. Harry is as honest as the day is long and all the bar-room tittle-tattle is unfair.'

Harry doesn't bung it on, maybe the odd BBQ and a romantic evening with the Mrs.

Vital Pre-Match - League 2, 1st October

The 2016-17 season continues with the latest round of matches this weekend, which will see us among those having a match in this upcoming schedule with three-points the aim of course.

Tollitt still has a Pompey chance

Well, according to Cook. He's insisting Tollitt, the former Everton academy player who had returned to Merseyside to join Tranmere on loan, can still return to Pompey.

Pompey win and lose collectively

As such Cook doesn't want the fans to start turning on individual players, which has been the case with Bennett with Smith not exactly viewed as a 'fans' favourite' either.
