Harry Redknapp’s solicitorsÂ have revealed that the Tottenham manager is set to face legal proceedings next month over a tax issue.
A statement from BCL Burton Copeland on the official Spurs site read: “Harry Redknapp is extremely surprised and disappointed to have been informed that HMRC intend to institute proceedings against him in the week commencing 11January 2010. We believe that the decision to commence proceedings will, in due course, be shown to have been totally misconceived.”
The club added: “The Club considers this matter to be a private, tax issue which pre-dates Harry’s employment with the Club and which is not related to football matters. His position remains unaffected and he has the full support of the Club.”
