Kanu grateful to Portsmouth boss Redknapp

Nwankwo Kanu is grateful to Portsmouth boss Harry Redknapp for his support.

He said: "He knows what you can do and he gives you freedom. If the gaffer believes in you and you are happy then you produce."

People keep asking him how Redknapp compares with somebody like Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger and he says: "Harry is different. He is somebody who tries to encourage you with his words. He makes you feel special and yet pushes you as well.

"There are some coaches who know what you can do and believe in you, but they don't order you, they just direct you."
