Southampton Welcomes New Manager
Southampton owner Markus Liebherr announced today that there would be a new manager incharge of the the Saints replacing manager Alan Pardrew. He refused to comment on the reason for the replacement but he announced that he is happy to welcome the new manager who hails from Malaysia a former British colony. The appointment has come as a suprise and the new manager is surely going to be under much scrutiny. The manager has about a week to work on the team and the Chariman has announced that he expects the manager to gain promotion. This would be the first time a Malaysian manager would be incharge and only time would tell what would become of this. When asked about his transfer targets he says he has several players in mind but refused to reveal and comment on who the players are instead replying that when the time comes he will reveal his plans but at the moment all seems to be quiet but he refused to comment on rumours that he is bringing in some Japanese players due to his role as the national coach of Japan. He expressed his gratitude for being able to take up the job and he promises to work his very best in order to bring the best out of the team..
