Milan has told Pompey pages that Avram Grant is Harry’s decision to bring him to Pompey and not his.
Mandaric said: ‘It’s Harry’s decision. He wanted Avram Grant in – and he has my full support in that decision. Harry is in charge. Avram Grant will work for Harry. He is part of Harry’s team.
‘I went through some things with Harry in the past, when Velimir Zajec came in. Harry and I really got to know each other as a result of that, and are closer now than ever.
‘So I would never do anything to undermine Harry Redknapp or his position. And Sacha Gaydamak feels the same way.’
