Southampton have thanked Ralph Krueger after the club confirmed the departure of the chairman after six years at the helm.
Krueger’s contract will not be extended beyond its end date of 30 June after recent talks between Saints shareholders Gao Jisheng and Katharina Liebherr.
The club released a statement on the situation on Friday morning that promised more information on “the future leadership structure” at the end of the current season. “The shareholders and everyone involved with the club would like to put on record their thanks for Ralph’s leadership, dedication and hard work over his six years with Southampton,” said the statement.
“For now, all our efforts and focus are on a strong finish to the season and remaining within the Premier League.” Mr Gao said: “Ralph represented our club with honour and integrity, and followed The Southampton Way with great passion.
We thank him for the foundations he has helped to build and wish him well for the future.” Katharina Liebherr added: “Ralph laid the foundations for the Saints to be a sustainable team that put pressure on the top sides in the Premier League. “He was a true leader who fully embodied The Southampton Way, a culture which will live on strongly beyond his time as chairman. “I, along with my family, will always be grateful for all that Ralph has done for the club.”Fastest Paying Betting Site in Nigeria: Grab your 140% First Time Deposit Bonus Now — www.Sportybet.Com Copyright © 2021 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
