Harry Redknapp arrives at Southwark Crown Court to face charges of tax evasion alongside former Portsmouth chairman Milan Mandaric.

Tottenham Hotspur boss Harry Redknapp has arrived at Southwark Crown Court on charges of tax evasion.

The 64-year-old has been accused of two counts of cheating the public revenue during his managerial career at Portsmouth, alongside former Pompey chairman Milan Mandaric.

Mandaric, who is now chairman of Leicester City, is alleged to have paid up to £93,000 and £96,000 on separate occasions to a bank account in Monaco held up by Redknapp, in a bid to avoid paying tax and national insurance.

The duo, who deny both charges, are due to stand trial in London for up to two weeks.

Redknapp will be absent from Tottenham's training sessions during the fortnight and the verdict is expected to be announced when the North London side face Liverpool on February 6.
