Redknapp welcomes Smith
Portsmouth manager Harry Redknapp has described the return of Jim Smith to the club "as good as a new signing".

Redknapp has appointed the former Pompey and Derby boss as his number two.

Smith was dismissed by Coventry in April after the Sky Blues failed to make the Division One play-offs.

Kevin Bond, previously an assistant manager at Fratton Park, is the new reserve team coach.

Redknapp said: "In Jim and Kevin I have the perfect people and I am really raring to go.

"Jim and I go back a long way and he has a tremendous record in management.

He is a hero at Fratton Park and quite rightly so after what he achieved here."

Bond has also acted briefly as caretaker manager of the club in the past.
