Former Portsmouth owner Milan Mandaric has recommended Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp to Sulaiman Al Fahim.
Al Fahim, who fronts the proposed takeover of Pompey, will have to appoint a new manager if he takes control of the club as Paul Hart was appointed until the end of the season.
Mandaric told The News: "Harry Redknapp is a fantastic manager. He knows and understands the game far better than most."
He added: "He's a top manager and the right manager for Portsmouth. I rate him so highly.
"Managing people is his best quality. He's not perfect and sometimes he would drive me crazy, but that quality always prevails."
He added: "You've got to do the right thing and if bringing Harry to the club is what he needs to do, that is what he has to do."
