Sol hails Pompey saviour

06 Dec 2006 - 17:01:48

Portsmouth defender Sol Campbell has hailed manager Harry Redknapp as the saviour of the south coast club.

Redknapp celebrates the one-year anniversary of his return to Fratton Park on Thursday and Campbell believes the veteran manager is responsible for turning around Pompey's fortunes.

Redknapp - who walked out of Fratton Park in January 2004 before taking charge of Portsmouth's bitter rivals Southampton soon after - replaced the sacked Alan Perrin on December 7 last year.

"Harry has come back in and done a fantastic job for this club," Campbell told the Portsmouth News.

"Portsmouth were kind of dead and buried a year ago really and he's come in like a Messiah and helped them out.

"It has kicked on from there. He has brought in a few more players, created a great bunch of lads, and is a great manager."
