Harry Redknapp was arrested by anti corruption police as the investigation by their economic crimes unit into alleged bungs swung into overdrive.
Redknapp confirmed that he had been arrested and said: 'They have to arrest you to talk to you, for you to be in the police station. I think that's the end of it, it didn't directly concern me.'
No, Harry the police don't have to arrest you to talk to you. Not unless they feel that you are withholding information and they want you to sing like a canary.
Also arrested were the chief executive of Portsmouth, Peter Storrie, and Milan Mandaric, the Serbian businessman who owned Portsmouth until September last year and is now chairman of Leicester City. A total of five individuals were arrested by the police. The multiple arrests follow Tottenham defender Pascal Chimbonda being taken in for questioning on similar conspiracy to defraud and false accounting matters in September.
Redknapp was in the running for the England job but with the prosecutors planning to indict him it will essentially rule him out of the race. Anyways, just as well because I don't see anyone other than Jose Mourinho doing justice as England's manager.
