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 '“ 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!'

Pompey won the FA Cup under Harry Redknapp back in 2008 '“ with players such as Nwankwo Kanu, John Utaka and Sulley Muntari in the starting XI.
