Hreidarsson: Portsmouth crisis has brought squad together

Hermann Hreidarsson says Portsmouth's problems have brought the squad closer together.

Pompey lost their first seven league games and then revealed they could not pay the players their wages on time.

He said: "I think this problem will bring us all closer as we are all in it together. It will give us some unity.

"The players will survive and it is only a day or so without getting their wages. We were told about it on Thursday and it was explained to us in a very professional manner by the financial director.

"Everyone understands this situation. It was a payroll problem and there is nothing to worry about in the long term. It is a matter of case closed as far as the players are concerned.

"This happened to me when I was at Crystal Palace and you just have to get on with it. You have to deal with it in a professional way and not let it affect your game."
