Former West Ham United manager Harry Redknapp is in court today to face charges of tax evasion.
Redknapp, now 64, is accused of two counts of tax fraud alongside former Portsmouth chairman Milan Mandaric.
It is alleged that Redknapp, who spent two spells at Portsmouth after he was sacked by West Ham was the recipient of £93,300 paid into a bank account in Monaco by Mandaric in at some point between 2002 and 2007.
Secondly, he is accused of receiving a further sum of £96,000 into the same account at some point between 2004 and 2007.
Redknapp, whose hopes of one day managing the English national team hinge on the outcome of the case has previously denied any wrongdoing.
The former Hammers winger and current Tottenham boss was manager of West Ham between 1994 to 2001, before he was fired by chairman Terry Brown.
Mandaric, who spent time at Leicester after leaving Portsmouth is currently chairman of League One Sheffield Wednesday.

''Dear Staff Writer. I can find only two factual corrections in your article that I feel need be pointed out. The crest to the right of Mr Redknap appears to be one of claret and blue. Is the HMRS crest not a different colour?
I think you have misspelt winger, it is spelt Whinger.
Kind Regards, Yours sincerely etc.
PS. I feel the addition of a bar of soap and brown paper bag being Photoshopped into the photograph may add to the effectiveness of your excellently informative article.''
