Tottenham manager could face tax grilling

Reports on Harry Redknapp and the taxman dominate hit red tops' back pages this weekend

Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp could face a showdown this week with the
taxman over his financial affairs.

Peter Crouch’s transfer from Portsmouth to Aston Villa is believed to be one
of the main focuses of HMRC’s investigations, according to reports this weekend.

Redknapp, former Portsmouth owner Milan Mandaric and chief executive Peter
Storrie are alleged to be under investigation by HMRC, reported the
News
of the World
.

He strenuously denied any wrongdoing, and claimed to have paid £10m in income
tax over the past ten years.

“They won’t let it go even though I’ve got nothing to hide. And you know why?
Because it’s me. It’s a matter of around £10,000 in tax they think I owe but
which is in dispute,” said Redknapp in the Sun.

“If it had been anyone else, a normal member of the public, they would have
dropped it, or told them to pay up with a bit of interest and that would have
been the end of the matter.

“But not with me and I’m getting sick of it.

“It’s been two years and this is what it has come down to.

“They have wasted however many millions of pounds of taxpayers’ money and
this is all they have to show for it.”
