Portsmouth boss Redknapp: Arsenal have no say on Traore selection

Portsmouth boss Harry Redknapp insists he has final say on the selection of on-loan Arsenal fullback Armand Traore. He said: "Armand is only 19 years of age. He hasn't played this amount of games before. At Arsenal he was in and out of the side – he's not used to regular football. "When we took him on loan there was no instruction that we had to play him every game. We've just got to look at the situation match by match."
