Tony Adams has been openly courting potential coaches to work with him at Portsmouth – Martin Keown turned him down for the comfort of the BBC couch this week – so it came as no surprise yesterday that the current encumbent of the No 2 spot at the club, Joe Jordan, decided to head for pastures new. Jordan is set to join up with the previous Pompey manager Harry Redknapp who is now working his miracles at Tottenham Hotspur.
The 56-year-old Scot spent four years at Fratton Park – during which time he briefly took charge of the first team on a caretaker basis. Redknapp, has already brought in Kevin Bond as a coach, with Tim Sherwood also drafted in to work with the first-team squad. Les Ferdinand has also joined the Spurs team as a consultant to the strikers.Reuse content
