Portsmouth have appointed Tony Adams as Harry Redknapp's assistant manager.
The ex-England defender will take up his role on Saturday and replaces Kevin Bond who moved to Newcastle.
The 39-year-old former Arsenal captain has managed Wycombe Wanderers and coached in Holland following his retirement in 2002.
Redknapp told the club website: "Tony can do a great job for us, he knows the game inside out and I'm really looking forward to him working alongside me."
The role is Adams' first in the English top-flight and the first time he will have worked under the former West Ham manager.
Adams spoke of his admiration for Redknapp earlier this month.
He said: "Harry's a guy I respect and one I'd love to work with.
"He (Redknapp) obviously thinks a lot of me to approach me and I've got a lot of admiration for him. The respect I've got for him is second to none, he's a great man.
"I love the character he is. He seems really honest and that's all I've ever wanted, to work for people who are like that."
