Pompey charged over Redknapp approach

Portsmouth could face punishment from the Premier League after being charged for breaching rules in their approach to bring manager Harry Redknapp back to Fratton Park last month.

While at Southampton, Redknapp was initially refused permission to speak to Pompey about filling their managerial vacancy; then he left St Mary's after feeling his position was untenable.

Pompey chairman Milan Mandaric eventually appointed Redknapp, a year after the manager had left the club for rivals Southampton.

The Premier League have received a complaint from Southampton and will now decide if Pompey's approach to Redknapp was within the boundaries of their rules.

'The board of the Premier League received an official complaint from Southampton surrounding the departure from the club of Harry Redknapp and his subsequent appointment as manager of Portsmouth,' read a statement from the Premier League.

'Having considered the circumstances, the board has decided to charge Portsmouth FC with breaching the approach rules. A commission will be appointed to deal with the matter.'

Redknapp insisted claims of an illegal approach were 'not true', before the charge was made.

'The whole thing is a lot of old tosh,' he said.

'It is not true. But let them investigate if they want; let them charge us if they want - I don't care.'

Officials could also look at Mandaric's appearance on television, revealing Redknapp was a target.

'It's incorrect to discuss other people's employees in interviews with Sky Sports,' Lowe said when Redknapp departed from St Mary's.

'I've spoken to Richard Scudamore at the Premier League and asked him to look at the coverage and whether it is appropriate.'

Mandaric has previously denied any impropriety in his approach for Redknapp.

'I have done everything properly and consulted with the Premier League. I have done nothing wrong,' he said.

It is unclear what the punishment would be if Pompey were found guilty.

Last year Chelsea were handed a £300,000 fine for making an illegal approach to Arsenal defender Ashley Cole while the player was still under contract.
