Portsmouth Owe More Than £6.7million to Former Pompey Players: Daily Soccer Report

portsmouth fc Portsmouth Owe More Than £6.7million to Former Pompey Players: Daily Soccer Report

Only three years after being relegated from the Premier League, Portsmouth still owe more than £6.7million to former Pompey players.

Portsmouth, who are now in League Two and are owned by the club’s supporters, still have massive debts to pay off to former players including £1,633,333 that’s owed to defender Tal Ben Haim.

The long list of players still owed money also include David James, Kanu, David Nugent, Benjani, Luke Varney and Dave Kitson.

It makes you wonder how much of a detrimental impact Harry Redknapp had on Portsmouth, almost putting them completely out of business.

    How do you connect Redknapp with the overall debt? How many checks do you think he actually wrote?

    Crap article written by someone who knows little about how a football club is run and even less about Pompey.

    You need to look at the revolving door of ownership and the Chairman. That’s where the truth is and not some bullsh*t made up crap.
