There's only one Velimir Zajec

Milan has moved to quash speculation that Velimir Zajec has left his post at Panathinaikos to move to Fratton Park.

The rumour goes that Zajec is leaving his Director of Football position in Greece to take up a similar job on the south coast. Following the argument between Milan and Harry at the end of last season, and the media's constant attempts to drag it back up again, such a story was always going to spread quickly.

As you might expect, Milan has stamped out the rumour - although no doubt it'll still be reported for a good week or so yet. He said, "At the moment it is wrong information... I am not intending to appoint a director of football or someone above Harry at this time... Mr Redknapp's position is secure."

Harry, meanwhile, was clearly oblivious. "I have not heard about that. You will have to ask the chairman", said the gaffer. In fact, you could say, it's all Greek to him! Ha ha! Ha.
