Paul Cook has talked of the spirit of Alan Ball as he takes over the Pompey manager’s job.

He told how he was inspired by the England World Cup hero, who was twice boss at Fratton, as well as of his own expectations, the power of the home crowd, transfer targets, his own managerial methods, memories of playing at Fratton Park, and more.

The interview was conducted and produced for Pompey’s own video service.
