Redknapp faces legal proceedings over tax issue

Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp has been told he faces legal

proceedings over a tax issue.

His lawyers issued a statement on Saturday saying that

Redknapp was “extremely surprised and disappointed” to hear about

the action by the Customs authority while Tottenham said it was a

private, non-football matter which predated his arrival at the club

in October last year.

Redknapp was previously at Portsmouth.

No details of the tax issues were revealed but lawyers BCL

Burton Copeland said the decision to commence proceedings would, in

due course, be shown to have been totally misconceived.
