Harry Redknapp recalls a hilarious story about former Super Eagles and Portsmouth striker Yakubu Ayegbeni almost winning N 9 million (£20,000) bet with him.The 37-year-old retired Nigerian star who moves to Fratton Park for 4.5m from Maccabi Haifa in 2003, narrowly missed out with an odd goal.
Although Aiyegbeni netted four times in the final game of the 2003-04 campaign in Portsmouth 5-0 win over Middlesbrough, his effort was not good enough to claim the bet but Redknapp admitted he forgot placing a bet with Aiyegbeni at the commencement of the Premier League season.
