London: Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp is to face trial for tax evasion next year, it was revealed Saturday.
Redknapp 64, has been charged with two counts of cheating the public revenue between 2002 and 2007 when he was manager of Portsmouth, now in the English second-tier Championship.
Former Portsmouth chairman Milan Mandaric has also been charged with tax evasion.
Both men deny the charges and a trial expected to last two weeks is due to begin at London's Southwark Crown Court on January 23.
A court order banning reporting of the announcement was lifted on Saturday.
