Sam thankful for support

22 Sep 2006 - 15:14:09

Bolton Wanderers manager Sam Allardyce has thanked his Portsmouth counterpart Harry Redknapp for his words of support since Tuesday's Panorama programme.

The BBC's undercover investigation into football's bung culture alleged that both managers were guilty of improper actions.

Allardyce and son Craig were alleged to have received illegal payments, while Redknapp was said to have made an illegal approach for a player.

Allardyce said: "I've had some conversations with him (Harry Redknapp), yes. He said some nice things about me yesterday and the compliments go hand in hand.

"The support has been absolutely tremendous and I have to thank everyone who has contacted me by phone, by text, by e-mail, by letter or when I've bumped into them.

"That has been superb from my point of view and the rest of my family. The club, the staff and the players have been 100 per cent behind me. That has been very, very encouraging.

"We must move on, I'm getting on with my job, the players are doing theirs and there's nothing better than going down to Portsmouth and playing against a team who are currently the best in the Premiership."
