Tottenham’s manager Harry Redknapp will face trial in January on two charges of tax evasion.

Reporting restrictions around the case have been in place, and some remain, but it can now be reported that Redknapp, 64, is to be tried at Southwark Crown Court in a case due to begin on Monday 23 January.

Co-defendant Milan Mandaric also faces charges at the same time in a trial expected to last two weeks.

Redknapp, considered to be a potential England managerial candidate when Fabio Capello steps down next year, is currently on a short period of recuperation leave from Spurs following minor heart surgery earlier this month.

Tottenham lie fifth in the Premier League, with 22 points from 10 games.

As things stand, and barring any fixture date changes, Spurs are scheduled to play a Premier League game at Manchester City on the eve of the trial, Sunday 22 January.

Other games in the following weeks include Tottenham v Wigan (Tuesday 31 January), Liverpool v Tottenham (Saturday 4 February) and Tottenham v Newcastle (Saturday 11 February).

Though there are clear potential implications over the management of Tottenham during the case, the club have declined to make any comment so far. Spurs regard the trial as private matter for Redknapp, and unrelated to Spurs business.

CHARGE ONE

Mandaric and Redknapp, between 1 April 2002 and 28 November 2007, with intent to defraud and to the prejudice of HM Revenue and Customs, arranged for $145,000, paid by Mandaric as a result of or in connection with Redknapp’s employment and as a reward for services, to be transferred to a Monaco bank account opened by Redknapp for that purpose, in order to conceal the said emolument from HM Revenue and Customs and evade the payment of income tax and national insurance contributions thereon (whether by the operation of PAYE by the club or otherwise).

CHARGE TWO

Mandaric and Redknapp between 1 May 2004 and 28 November 2007, with intent to defraud and to the prejudice of HM Revenue and Customs, arranged for $150,000, paid by Mandaric as a result of or in connection with Redknapp’s employment and as a reward for services, to be transferred to a Monaco bank account opened by Redknapp for that purpose, in order to conceal the said employment income from HM Revenue and Customs and evade the payment of income tax and national insurance contributions thereon (whether by the operation of PAYE by the club or otherwise).
