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."
