While the ex-Pompey boss seemed to enjoy the trip,Â he explained a few of the players were slightly less enthusiastic than him.
He said: '˜That was a great team I had there. I had a team of African players and we went to South Africa on a safari.
'˜The guy in charge said to me we would be up at 5:30am '“Â we had lovely coffee, cake and then on the jeeps for 6am.
'˜Then the players came up to me and said 'Gaffer, we are from Africa. We have seen elephants, we have seen lions, we don't want to get up at 5:30!'
PompeyÂ won the FA Cup under Harry Redknapp back in 2008 '“Â with players such asÂ Nwankwo Kanu,Â John Utaka and Sulley Muntari in the starting XI.
