Tottenham boss Redknapp has no regrets over manner of Portsmouth exit

Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp has no regrets over the manner of his move from Portsmouth.

"I only wish Portsmouth every success," said Redknapp.

"I took a team when they were bottom of the league and we had no players but we built a squad there, a fantastic group of players.

"I thought I left Portsmouth in the best possible shape - they are a fantastic bunch of players and whoever gets the job will carry it on. It's a bigger club than me, that's for sure.

"It wasn't a money move - lots of people said after the FA Cup win that I should leave then.

"I have done as well as I can on the resources - the support is great and they love their club but I've done my job there.

"I've kept them up and won the cup...but this is a chance to take on another big challenge."

He added on BBC Radio Five Live: "It's time to move on - lose a few games and people start wanting you out.

"The fans have got so much to look forward to. They've got AC Milan coming up in the UEFA Cup - who would have thought they'd be coming to Fratton Park?"
