Pochettino: I always knew Southampton not for sale

Southampton boss Mauricio Pochettino says news of the club not being up for sale is no surprise to him.

New Saints chairman Ralph Krueger has confirmed Katharina Liebherr has "zero" plans to sell up.

Pochettino said: "Do you remember my first press conference when Katharina Liebherr became the new acting chairman?

"I spoke with her for just five minutes before that massive press conference, that really important press conference.

"I think that was mid-January when that happened, and I am not surprised by the fact she does not intend to sell the club.

"In those five minutes I spoke with her, she told me 'I am not selling this football club' so that made everything much calmer for me.

"I knew from that moment on that there was no intention to sell the football club."
