Redknapp confirms Baros interest

Redknapp confirms Baros interest

There has been a lot of talk surrounding Milan Baros and a possible move to Pompey, a lot of this merely paper talk and talk from his agent Pavel Paska but finally Harry Redknapp has confirmed to The News that he is indeed a target of his - his 'prime target' according to the paper: 'I'm just looking for a front man at the moment - that's the important one.

'We need more bodies up front. That was the case before Kanu went; now we've only got two. We need to strengthen there, for sure.

'Baros is a player I know. I like him and I would be interested. I think he's a good player.

'He's played in the World Cup for the Czech Republic, who are a very good team, and been a
golden boot winner in the European Championships. That's fantastic pedigree for any player.

'And you don't play for Liverpool if you are a mug. He's a top player.

'I know Peter Storrie has spoken to the people there and that's all at the moment. I don't think there's anything concrete just yet'.

I do not think that his quality and pedigree can be doubted, he did well in England last time but I still feel he will feel he has something to prove here, so if we could arrange a deal I would be more than pleased - although it is already being 'said' that an approach has been rejected?

It is looking more and more likely that any deal that we do for a striker will have to be a loan deal as despite all the talk it is not looking like we will have the funds to buy - that is unless we sell... but then again as I keep telling myself with Pompey you never know what might happen, so you can never say never.

I heard it was all paper talk & name pulling out of a hat. Difficult to believe if that is the truth or a double bluff. I don't worry to much, just pleased when it is announced officially.

off topic, but i just want to make sure can people see the new 'promo banner - join the vital pompey debate' that ive made... its working for me, and 'should' catch peoples eyes and get more involved i think... and back to this, at least 'arry is confirming an interest, so not just 'all' agent talk...

Wait and see eh Matt, thought that was my line. Baros would be a good signing young and a goalscorer. Plenty of experience too.

It is gargantuan Rug, I'm not a fan but if it gets more members why not?

It's great Harry has come out and stated his intentions with Baros. He'd be a fantastic signing for us.

Go and get him Harry especially with Kanu carried off on a stretcher, or was he just tired and could not make it off the pitch. We do not need any of the players out in Ghana to get hurt and wasnt Utaka rubbish.

i didnt watch the nigeria game but i was led to believe that kanu was poor before he was carried off? the news make him out to have been the 'star performer' before his injury... that confuses me. so 'arry and co are really going for baros? if so i would be happy with that - very happy in fact!

Would like to see what Baros can do here, saw him play in the same reserves team as Berger at West Leigh Park, thought he was quick. Anyone know how old he is?
