Harry Redknapp has been told he can stay at Portsmouth for as long as he wants after masterminding the club's first FA Cup success for 69 years.
Redknapp has sealed his status as a Fratton Park legend thanks to Saturday's 1-0 victory over Cardiff at Wembley, which also booked the team's first ever European campaign.
Portsmouth chief executive Peter Storrie – who worked with Redknapp when they were both at West Ham – made it clear there is no chance of the manager being allowed to leave.
Storrie insisted reports Redknapp may quit in the close-season were wide of the mark and, asked if the former West Ham boss would be staying, he said: “Definitely. He absolutely loves it here, this is his home.
“He enjoys being manager of Portsmouth this is his team a team he put together and now he wants to go on.
“As far as (owner) Sacha Gaydamak is concerned Harry is here for as long as Harry wants to be here and let's hope that is for many, many years to come.
“Harry loves the job and you could see what Saturday meant for him.”
