Portsmouth still face administration threat

Portsmouth continue to face administration threats, despite the takeover of Ali Al Faraj last week.

The Mail on Sunday says Portsmouth still face the threat of administration, despite the club's latest takeover - because of £10million of debts to the tax authorities.

HM Revenue and Customs are threatening the club and new owners Falcondrone, controlled by Saudi businessman Ali Al Faraj, with court action and a winding-up order over outstanding PAYE, National Insurance and VAT contributions.

Portsmouth fans hoped the Falcondrone swoop to unseat Sulaiman Al Fahim had finally ended the financial crisis at Fratton Park.

A club insider said: "We need the co-operation of all parties or there is still the danger of administration. The club was on its belly when the takeover happened.

"The Falcondrone team will not let the club down, but they need to work with people to resolve the outstanding issues."
