Harry 'I've Done Nothing Wrong'

Harry 'I've Done Nothing Wrong'

Portsmouth manager Harry Redknapp maintains he has done 'absolutely nothing wrong' following the BBC's screening of their Panorama investigation into alleged corruption in football.

The programme aimed to expose a 'bung culture' within the game, a topical prelude to the publication of Lord Stevens' report on the 300-plus player transfers involving Premiership clubs over the past two years.

Redknapp, 59, is accused in the programme of 'tapping up' Blackburn defender Andy Todd in discussions held in the canteen at Portsmouth's training ground.

Redknapp tells agent Peter Harrison: 'I like Toddy, don't I? No I'd take him. I would take him. I would take him without a doubt. I like him.'

The Portsmouth boss is renowned for his record in the transfer market, and a number of shrewd signings during the summer have helped Pompey top the Barclays Premiership after five matches.
West Ham, thankfully, didn't get a mention on the Panorama programme on Tuesday, but ex-Hammers boss Harry Redknapp was one of the 'stars'.

The now infamous BBC programme has asked questions about several clubs, including Liverpool, Chelsea, Bolton and Portsmouth, but Harry vehemently denies he has any case to answer.

Redknapp: 'I haven't seen it (the programme) but I'm looking forward to going home and having a nice cup of tea and a slice of toast and watching it because I've done absolutely nothing wrong.

'There's nothing on there that I would have to consult my lawyer about. As far as I'm concerned there's not a single thing to worry about and I've said that from day one.

'If you haven't done anything wrong then you haven't got anything to worry about have you? Simple as that.'

And as he said, he had nothing to answer too. If anyone didnt anything wrong it was the Agent. All Harry did was admit he liked the player, and he would take him if he had the chance. End Of. the agent mentioned the player to start the conversation too, so its not even a case of tapping up. Poor programme. Lots of hype.
