Portsmouth boss Hart admits they're paying for FA Cup glory

Portsmouth boss Paul Hart admits the south coast side are paying the price for their Wembley glory.

Portsmouth have been forced to sell off the bulk of their cup-winning team to reduce debts that peaked at £70 million.

He said: "We have been punching above our weight for some time now.

"The financial backing of Alexandre Gaydamak, the genius of Harry Redknapp and the backing from Peter Storrie - they were some great times for the club but it was clear it could not go on forever.

"Nobody was complaining at the time though."
