Gaydamak eyes top-four push

12 May 2008 - 13:25:22

Portsmouth owner Sacha Gaydamak sees no reason why Harry Redknapp's side should not challenge for a Champions League place next season.

Pompey have reached this month's FA Cup Final and clinched a place in the top half of the Premier League table, but Gaydamak is anticipating an even better campaign in 2008-09.

He said: "Next year the pressure will rise - we'll have to work on player recruitment, the infrastructure.

"If we qualify for Europe, the manager will naturally need a bigger squad and it's my job to make funds available to him.

"When I joined, we first got out of relegation. So now it seems realistic to enter the top four.

"To do so requires a certain structure, a mindset. And of course the rewards will help us to be a regular in the top four, not the top six."
