Harry Redknapp backs Baros to score soon

Not everyone is convinced by Czech international striker Milan Baros but Portsmouth manager Harry Redknapp is. He signed the player from Lyon in January and is confident that Baros will find the back of the opposition net sooner rather than later.

Redknapp has this to say about the player:

To be fair, he’s had to play a lot of games since he joined us.

In the build-up to Bolton [last week] he’d played for the Czech Republic in a friendly against the Republic of Ireland.

That’s a lot of games for someone who had not even been playing regularly in France [for Lyon]. He’d been on the bench a lot of times. It’s not his fault, he’s fine. He’s a quality player, he just needs some games.

He looked tired against Bolton but it’s not a problem, the fitness levels will come and he’ll start scoring goals for us soon.

This is Baros’ second stint in the Premiership after spending a total of 5 years with Aston Villa and Liverpool. Baros is not a world class striker but is certainly a very good player who can score a decent number of goals when allowed to play regularly.
