Harry Redknapp: Portsmouth must be savedHarry Redknapp: Portsmouth must be saved

Former Portsmouth boss Harry Redknapp has said he will do all he can to save the embattled club from going out of business.

Redknapp plans to speak to Nwankwo Kanu, who has lodged a claim for £3million in pay, to see if he can convince the former Arsenal striker to work something out with the club.

“I will be ringing Kanu today to see if there is anything I can do,” he said.

Center-back  Tal Ben Haim is also owed a similar amount in wages and Redknapp added: “In the case of Tal Ben Haim, if players have a contract and are owed money, you can see why they think they should get it. But if the club closes down they won’t get a penny. They need to think hard about that.”

Redknapp spent five seasons at Fratton Park between 2002 and 2008, guiding the club to a momentous FA Cup win in 2008.

AC Milan’s star legend Filippo Inzaghi is the new coach of the club’s youth team.

Inzaghi spent 11 seasons at Milan, where his contract expired this summer.

The club announced that the former Italy striker, who scored 73 goals in 202 Serie A appearances for the Rossoneri, is to take over the Allievi Nazionali youth side, who play in the Italian Under-16 league.
