Jordan and Bond will take charge during tax trial
Harry Redknapp's assistants Joe Jordan and Kevin Bond will take on the Tottenham Hotspur manager's responsibilities on a day-to-day basis while Redknapp faces trial for tax evasion next week. The trial starts on Monday.
Bond and Jordan are expected to oversee training during the two weeks that the trial is scheduled to last, although Redknapp anticipates being at Vicarage Road for Friday evening's FA Cup fourth-round tie against Watford. Jordan and Bond will also conduct interviews and press conferences during that time, instead of the Spurs manager.
Redknapp and Milan Mandaric, who was his chairman during their time together at Portsmouth, will face trial jointly at Southwark Crown Court. The two are faced with two counts of cheating the public revenue.
The two men deny all charges.
