Hart Rejects Youth Role

Paul Hart has rejected Portsmouth's offer of a youth-team role and has confirmed that he will not be returning to the club in any capacity.

Hart's representatives released a statement which basically confirmed that Hart wasn't coming back to Portsmouth but would like to thank all of the Pompey fans and players for their support.

He doesn't believe that now he has been manager of Pompey that he could return to Fratton Park as a youth coach and he would like to get back into management quickly.

I should take the time to thank Paul for all of his effort during his time at Pompey. He kept us up last season under very trying circumstances and has been very unfortunate to see his side lose so many times this season.

I wish him all the best for the future/
