Harry Redknapp has revealed he believes he would have been sacked if Pompey had not pulled off their Great Escape.

In a video recorded by Pompey fans Ian and Margaret Marshall, the former Fratton boss says he was nearly in tears at the end of the 2-1 victory at Wigan in 2006 that sealed Pompey's Premiership survival after a stunning run of results.

And he reveals: 'If we'd have got relegated, that would have been the end of me.'

The video was recorded by Iand and Margaret as part of a series for the Life and Chimes - The Pompey Story show held at the Kings Theatre in Southsea last week.

In other videos, Redknapp has a special message for Pompey fans, talks about promotion to the Premiership and runs through his favourite games in the top flight.
