Corruption probe sees 5 arrests, lands big fish

5 arrests have taken place today in connection with a police probe into bung payments within the Premiership. Portsouth manager Harry Redknapp is the biggest fish caught in the probe, bu but Leicester City chairman Milan Mandaric, Rangers midfielder Amdy Faye (on loan from Charlton), and prominent agent Willie McKay all also brought in by police.

Portsmouth have confirmed the Redknapp news and he was held at Chichester police station on suspicion of conspiracy to defraud and false accounting.

Mandaric, as well as the others brought in were all arrested in pre-dawn raids after 60 police officers searched eight addresses.

It appears the transfer of Faye from Auxerre to Portsmouth in 2005 is the source of the problem. Mandaric was the chairman at the time, while McKay acted as agent.

Tottenham defender Pascal Chimbonda (a player McKay also represents) was arrested on suspicion of fraud back in September, and is currently out on bail.

Harry's odds for the England job drifted somewhat when that news broke today. A latter day Terry Venables ?

Amdy Faye - has he ever looked worth the money Portsmouth paid for him ? Has he ever looked worth money ???

Interestingly I remember his first game for Pompey, a pre-season friendly - when Redknapp played him under a false name 'Andy Henry' because he didn't have international clearance.

Wilful disregard for the rules and authorities shown there!!
