This morning`s papers are totally unanimous in their support for Harry Redknapp`s defection to become our next manager. Compensation figures are currently running from £4m – £6m paid to Allardyce, with an additional £2m to £3m required to get Redknapp`s services. Transfer kitty amounts range from £15m to £20m and there is even mention of the use of private jets so Harry can have some kind of high powered commute to work.
Peter Storrie, Pompey`s Chief Exec has softened his stance, saying:
“Harry is the manager, Harry is the manager we see going forward. Obviously, if Harry comes to us and says , ‘I want to leave’, then it’s a different scenario. We’ve come so far as a club and we’ve got so far to go, compensation is irrelevant. I sincerely hope we never get into that situation.’
Mark Hughes remains second on the shortlist. Mourinho and Klinsmann are also mentioned in despatches.
