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.

John Terry cleared of racism allegationsJohn Terry cleared of racism allegations

Chelsea captain John Terry has been cleared of racially abusing QPR player Anton Ferdinand.

The Chelsea and England defender had denied making the comments to the Queens Park Rangers player during a match at Loftus Road last October.

The case led to Terry being stripped of the England captaincy by the English Football Association ahead of the European Championship and the departure of coach Fabio Capello who disagreed with the decision.

Terry was charged after he was seen mouthing the words ‘f****** black c***’ in Ferdinand’s direction during Chelsea’s defeat against QPR at Loftus Road on October 23 last year.

Kuwaiti family takes over Nottingham ForrestKuwaiti family takes over Nottingham Forrest

The Kuwaiti Al-Hasawi family has completed a deal to buy two-time European Cup winners Nottingham Forest, the club has confirmed.

In a statement issued on the Championship side’s website, the Al-Hasawis said: “It is an honour and privilege for the Al-Hasawi family to assume control of this great club steeped in history and with the outstanding legacy left by its previous owner Nigel Doughty.”

Doughty put the club up for sale last October before dying of a cardiac arrest at his home in February.

Al-Hasawi’s love for football and previous experience of spending heavily to breed results is potentially great news for Forest fans, who are surely desperate to see their club attempt to return to the glory days.
