Pochettino’s Saints future in doubt

FOOTBALL: Uncertainty over the future of Southampton manager Mauricio Pochettino grew last night, after chairman Nicola Cortese resigned. Pochettino indicated in May 2013 he could not envisage working at the club if Cortese left, saying: “I would not understand a Southampton without Nicola being here.” Saints owner Katharina Liebherr has assumed the role of non-executive chairman and hopes to appoint a chief executive.
