Redknapp makes his first Portsmouth signing as Tottenham boss

Tottenham Hotspur have appointed Joe Jordan as their new first-team coach. On Friday the 56-year-old Scot left Portsmouth after four years and now links up again with Spurs boss Harry Redknapp, the former Pompey manager.

Spurs are also close to bringing in two former Spurs players – Tim Sherwood and Les Ferdinand – as part-time coaches.

After he was appointed Spurs manager, Redknapp moved quickly to bring in Kevin Bond as assistant manager. Clive Allen, who is in charge of Tottenham’s development squad, will also help Redknapp with the first-team.

Harry Redknapp:

“Tim and Les are also coming in to do a bit of work with the lads. Having them around the place will be great for us.

I am delighted to have Kevin and Joe with me here. They have both worked with me before, they are terrific football people and in my opinion they will bring so much to this club. They have managed and coached at the top level and are two individuals who are not only friends but people who I can rely on 100% to do the job.”

Portsmouth have praised Jordan’s “significant contribution” and revealed Adams hopes to announce his new coaching team next week.
