Portsmouth boss Redknapp full of praise for South Africa experience

Portsmouth boss Harry Redknapp was pleased with yesterday's friendly victory over Ajax Cape Town.

Jermain Defoe and Pedro Mendes struck in the 2-1 win and Redknapp told Pompey's website: "I thought Ajax were excellent.

"They played good passing football, moved well and were strong and quick.

"They're a very, very good team, very impressive. They were bright all over and got some great crosses in.

"I'd like to come to South Africa next pre-season, like Manchester United this pre-season, and play two or three games. It would be a great place to come and play.

"I've been so impressed with Cape Town and everything about the place. I don't see any reason from what I seen why South Africa shouldn't be a great venue for the World Cup in two years."
