Adams influence on Portsmouth's Mutu bid

Portsmouth assistant boss Tony Adams will be influential in any bid for Fiorentina striker Adrian Mutu.

Mutu was sacked by Chelsea in 2004 after failing a drug test and was serving a seven-month worldwide ban when he was snapped up by Juventus.

During his ban, Mutu attended the Sporting Chance clinic, which was co-founded by current Pompey No2 Adams.

Although Redknapp has a reputation for restoring the reputation of footballing bad boys, Adams can vouch that Mutu is already a reformed character - and has married for a second time since his troubled spell at Stamford Bridge.
