Southampton chairman Krueger insists club not up for sale

Southampton chairman Ralph Krueger insists the club is not up for sale.

Krueger vehemently denies accusations that the sale of first team players this summer has been motivated by a desire to asset strip the club to recoup the Liebherr investment before a sale.

He told the Daily Echo: "I can categorically shoot that down.

"I can speak for myself and I was offered a few National Hockey League head coach positions and I wouldn't have stayed in Southampton to be part of a sale.

"We wouldn't have hired Ronald Koeman, one of the great names in football, and his staff, for any reason other than working methodically in building in Southampton a competitive club.

"It's with the backing of Katharina so the club is not for sale."
