Portsmouth fans have been urged to go easy on Harry Redknapp when he returns to Fratton Park on Saturday.
Redknapp, now in charge at Tottenham will return to his former club this weekend, where some Pompey fans are still angry by how he left the club.
He said: ‘Obviously we all know what reaction he will probably get.
‘I just hope the fans will be fair and realise the success that Harry brought to the club, which was absolutely tremendous.
‘I know people say “oh you’re biased because he’s your friend” but he has brought great success to this football club: the highest league position in post-war, seven years in the Premier League, winning the FA Cup â€“ you can’t have any more than that.
‘Harry’s a top-quality manager and I think there will be a lot of people here who will appreciate that. Yes, obviously he will get some sort of stick and he knows that but I think you have to remember the job he’s done for the club.
‘He has always openly said that if what he perceived to be a big job came along he would like that opportunity â€“ and he’s doing that very successfully.
‘I just hope there’s a balance in the fans’ reaction at the game.’
Storrie added: ‘He’s getting great success at Tottenham and I hope that continues. Well, apart from two games against us. Then he can have all the success he wants.’
