Southampton boss: I’ll quit if chairman leaves club

Southampton manager Mauricio Pochettino has this morning confirmed he will follow Nicola Cortese out of the club should the executive chairman leave.

The Italian businessman is understood to be considering his position at Saints due to frustrations over the backing he receives.

Cortese, who has overseen Saints rise from League One to the top flight, wants the Liebherr trust to underwrite his strategy for Southampton to consolidate themselves in the Premier League.

The executive chairman will make a decision on whether to remain at the club within the next month and manager Pochettino has confirmed if Cortese leaves, so will he.
