Loanee O'Hara still committed to Portsmouth despite Hart departure

Jamie O'Hara is still committed to helping Portsmouth stay up, despite Paul Hart's sacking. The 23-year old is scheduled to return to parent club Tottenham in the New Year but would still like to stay until the end of the season. He told the Portsmouth News: "It was obviously a bit of a shock when Paul Hart was sacked.

"I had a chat with Paul when he went and I told him that it was a pleasure to play for him. It was sad that we couldn't get the results because he's a great man.

"Paul was great with everyone, he was great with me, but now Avram has come in and everyone has got to give him a chance.

"Avram is a very intelligent man and he knows football inside out. The way he talks about the game, you can tell he knows what he's talking about. I think he is going to be very good for us.

"I'm really enjoying my time at Portsmouth. I am playing week-in, week-out and I feel I have built a bond with the players and the fans.

"I'm just hoping we can start getting a few more results and get us out of the bottom three."

He added: "As players, we definitely feel responsible when the manager gets sacked. At the end of the day, it's the players who have got to go out and get the results.

"We are still playing, still getting paid and then the manager is out of a job.

"It's disappointing to see Paul go, but we have really got to push on now and start getting some results for the new manager."
