Southampton in Turmoil as Chairman Set to Depart

MOST COMMENTED

The future of Southampton coach Mauricio Pochettino has been thrown into doubt now that Chairman Nicola Cortese is set to depart the club with immediate effect, according to reports in England. BBC Sport is reporting that Cortese gave his formal resignation notice as many as three months ago, and is now coming to the end of his notice period. Cortese vehemently disagrees with Southampton owner Katharina Liebherr’s desire to sell the club.

Southampton was in third-place when Cortese tendered his resignation, but communication between the parties hit an impasse and now there appears to be no way back. Liebherr is set to assume the role as chairwoman once Cortese departs. Meanwhile, Pochettino has claimed that if Cortese, who brought the Argentine coach to St. Mary’s last spring, leaves the club, he would depart, too.

During Cortese’s tenure, Southampton climbed from League One (England’s third division), to the Premier League in less than four years.
