Redknapp among five arrested in probe

LONDON -- Portsmouth manager Harry Redknapp and chief executive Peter Storrie were among five people arrested Wednesday in an investigation into alleged corruption in English soccer.

The arrests were confirmed by the Premier League club, while British media reported the others arrested were Portsmouth chairman Milan Mandaric -- currently the chairman of Leicester -- former Portsmouth player Amdy Faye and his agent, Willie McKay.

Redknapp and Storrie have "been asked to help police with their inquiries concerning a matter dating back to 2003," the club said. "This was prior to the new owner taking control of the club at the beginning of 2006."

The men were arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to defraud and false accounting, said City of London Police, the agency that investigates financial crime. Eight locations across Britain were searched.

In July, police searched the offices of Premier League teams Newcastle and Portsmouth and Scottish club Rangers, along with the homes of two people. Tottenham defender Pascal Chimbonda also was questioned.

English soccer finances have been in the spotlight the past two years. The Premier League began an inquiry in 2006 following media allegations that managers, players or agents had been taking kickbacks from player transfers.
