Redknapp arrested in false accounting enquiry

Portsmouth manager questioned over Auxerre midfielder deal

Harry Redknapp, the manager of Portsmouth, was arrested yesterday in an
investigation into false accounting and conspiracy to defraud.

The move is the latest in a series of arrests relating to irregularities in
football transfers.

City of London police arrested Redknapp and three other men, believed to be
former Pompey chairman Milan Mandaric, agent Willie McKay and Portsmouth chief
executive Peter Storrie, the Times reports.

Redknapp was questioned for several hours before he was released on bail. He
maintained his innocence and said the probe did not ‘directly concern’ him and
that he was helping police in their inquiries.

The query is believed to be focused on Portsmouth’s £1.5m signing of Auxerre
midfielder Amdy Faye.
