Spurs manager faces tax charges

Harry Redknapp "extremely surprised" that he will face charges for cheating the public purse

Spurs manager Harry Redknapp is “extremely surprised and is disappointed”
that the taxman is beginning criminal proceedings against him for tax evasion,
in the New Year.

In a
statement
on Tottenham Hotspur’s website issued by his solicitors BCL Burton Copeland, it
said HM Revenue &
Customs’
decision will “in due course, be shown to have been
totally misconceived”.

It said the club said it gave Redknapp its full support, and his position was
unaffected.

“The club considers this matter to be a private, tax issue which pre-dates
Harry’s employment with the club and which is not related to football matters.”

The charge is understood to relate to unpaid tax on an offshore payment made
by former Portsmouth chairman Milan Mandaric to Redknapp when he was manager.
