Redknapp: “Portsmouth will not get relegated this season”
Manager says thing that probably isn’t true
In the weekly column written for him by a Sun journalist, Harry Redknapp never fails to say something contestable, and this week is no exception. While congratulating his former technical director Avram Grant for re-joining the Portsmouth management team, the Tottenham boss expressed both his confidence in his former employers and a charming naivety concerning the relegation betting market:
There is a new owner, a new man to help Paul and a win under their belts. They will not get relegated this season.
If I were a betting man I’d even put 25 pence each-way on that!
Is ‘Arry right to suggest Avram Grant et al can turn things around, or can they look forward to a couple of fixtures against Hull in the fizzy pop league next year? Let us know below. Or don’t. Whatever…
