Tottenham boss Redknapp to stand trial for tax evasion

Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp will stand trial in January over tax evasion charges. The charge relates to Redknapp’s time at Portsmouth where he is accused of cheating the public revenue along with former chairman Milan Mandaric.

The pair have allegedly concealed payments from HM Revenue & Customs worth 5,000 by paying the money in a Monaco bank account opened by Redknapp for that specific purpose.

Redknapp and Mandaric face two charges of cheating the public revenue and the Spurs boss is likely to be away from the Spurs training ground for two weeks whilst the trial takes place at Southwark Crown Court in London.

The payments have allegedly been paid by Mandaric in two separate totals of 5,000 and 0,000 between April 1st 2002 and November 28th 2007, the time in which Redknapp and Mandaric were involved with Portsmouth.

Redknapp and Mandaric will face court either on or after the 23rd January.
