Portsmouth manager vows to save Bournemouth

Harry Redknapp is achieving great things at Portsmouth this season, although he’s keen never to forget the club that gave him his first managerial opportunity. The Daily Mail report that the Pompey gaffer is determined not let AFC Bournemouth go out of business after the club were placed into administration earlier this month. Harry to the rescue!

“I live in the area and started my managerial career at the club. I have got a lot of time for the club and I am prepared to do whatever it takes.

“It’s a great little football club with a nice little stadium and they get crowds of 5-6000 even when they are struggling. It’s a club that means a lot to me and I will help them if I can. I will put in cash if necessary”

There’s a distinct possibility that the Football League would prevent Redknapp from doing this due to a conflict of interests, although it will be reassuring for Cherries fans to hear this news. Nevertheless, they appear to be doomed to relegation into League Two after having ten points deducted this season.
