Krueger: Southampton very special to Liebherr

New Southampton chairman Ralph Krueger says club owner Katharina Liebherr is very involved in the running of the club.

Liebherr has taken charge of Saints following the passing of her father, Markus.

"Katharina will be actively involved," said Krueger. "She has really enjoyed getting involved.

"Her father's spirit is with her every time she walks in the stadium.

"Yes, she has a family, yes, she has other things going on, but this has become a very important priority for her."

Krueger added: "From day one, it has been very natural, easy and refreshing. She is in the conversations. She cares.

"She has really good insight and very creative in her ideas and I look forward to implementing those for her. It was natural.

"The sports side was important to her, that I understood major league sports, because if you don't get it in major league sports, that would be a huge blocking point."
