Schemmel: Last summer Harry saved my life

It was Harry Redknapp who brought the French defender to Upton Park two years ago, and Schemmel was all smiles after the Pompey boss re-signed him last August.

He told the official website: "Harry Redknapp knows my true worth and I am very thankful for him bringing me here.

"I thought in the early days that West Ham was a great club to be involved in, the best for me, but I was wrong. I am now here with Portsmouth and it is amazing."

Lets hope Schemmel isn't wrong again this time!
