Portsmouth chief Milan Mandaric has admitted he has been bombarded by text messages telling him to sack manager Harry Redknapp.
Since new backer Alexandre Gaydamak’s £20m (€29m)-plus investment in the club Portsmouth have failed to win a match.
“I got text messages from supporters saying we should get rid of Alain [Perrin] and now I am getting messages saying we should sack Harry,” chairman Mandaric told the Daily Mirror.
“It is a difficult situation because we have spent a lot of money, brought in nine players and ‘Sacha’ [Gaydamak] is yet to see a victory.
“I understand the fans’ frustration but everyone needs to get behind Harry and give him the chance to make it. We still believe there is no better manager out there to get us out of trouble.”
