Redknapp to face July trial on tax evasion charges

BY foxsports • February 11, 2011

Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp will go on trial in July on charges of tax evasion dating from his time in charge of Portsmouth.

Redknapp and his former Portsmouth chairman Milan Mandaric will face charges at Southwark Crown Court in south London on allegations that Mandaric paid Redknapp a total $295,000 via a Monaco bank account.

Redknapp, who ended a second spell in charge of Portsmouth in 2008, is charged with two counts of cheating the government of an estimated 40,000 pounds ($64,000).

The pair were charged last year following an inquiry involving City of London Police and the government's Revenue and Customs department.
