Former Pompey chairman Milan Mandaric said he happy to have woken from a ‘horrible dream’ after being found not guilty today.
Mandaric was cleared at Southwark Crown Court of sending Harry Redknapp a tax-free offshore bung worth £93,100.
Speaking to reporters outside court, Mandaric said: ‘I would rather not talk much now, and I’m quite sure you understand that.
‘I’ve got to go somewhere to try to pinch myself and wake me up from that horrible dream that I had in the past.
‘As we said in the statements, I always believed in the truth, and always believed in the British justice system.’
