Ricardo Rocha: Knows Pompey need him

The Portuguese centre-half's current short-term deal will expire this week but caretaker boss Guy Whittingham is confident he will not join the exodus which saw six players leave earlier this month.

"I am pretty sure Ric will be with us," Whittingham told The News.

"He knows we want him here and he knows the fans want him here, so we can be pretty sure he will be here.

"Ric is that type of character we need and he knows that."
