Krueger Committed To Southampton With Chinese Talks Still Ongoing !
Thursday, 20th Apr 2017 13:03
Ralph Krueger has reiterated his commitment to Southampton FC as rumours surface he is wanted back in Ice Hockey over the pond.
Ralph Krueger has been linked this week with a coaching role at Canadian Ice Hockey tean Vancouver Cannucks who play in the NHL which is composed of American and Canadian teams.
Kruegers sporting background is in Ice Hockey however at a time when Saints ownership going forward is uncertain he has committed himself to St mary's at least for the foresseable future.
Canadian journalist Elliotte FriedmanTweeted that Krueger had told him via email:
“I have had some interesting chats these past weeks, but my focus remains fully on the Saints for now.”
Katharina Liebherr is of course in talks with Lander Holdings at the moment as detailed on this website a couple of days ago, initially it was thought that the deal had collapsed when Lander Holdings subsidiary Lander Sports announced that it was pulling out, but this seems to be only because the protracted negotiations meant that its shares had to be suspended on the Chinese stockmarket.
Lander Holdings are unlisted and therefore are not subject to the same restrictions, so it seems they have taken over the deal for at least the time being.
It is said that Katharina Liebherr will retain an 80% holding in Saints to oversee the transition and to make sure that her Father's legacy is maintained.
Krueger meanwhile will be keeping a close eye on proceedings, should Lander take over if he is retained he will perhaps feel that this would be an exciting time to be Chairman of Southampton FC and offer him a better career path forward than the uncertainty of being a coach again and the uncertain employment that offers.

Gylfi Not Irreplaceable- But Not Trying To Directly Replace Him Is Smart by BarneyLW
So the dust has finally settled. In what seemed like the most painstaking saga in living memory, Gylfi Sigurdsson is an Everton player. A man the club were silently resigned to eventually losing has moved on and like so often in the past, the club must plan for life without their star player.
Too many things for a title, but stop with the xenophobia accusations! by waynekerr55
I had planned to write this in a different fashion, but Bob Bradley's departure from the club changes a section of this blog. The conclusion was as expected. A seemingly good man and a tryer who simply wasn't up to the job. In short he should never have been given the job.
A New Hope At the Liberty? by BarneyLW
A feeling of déjà vu rose with the sun over Swansea this morning. Another manager out the door, another few days of links, speculation, supposed sightings of candidates spotted outside Rossi’s sampling the scampi. But for the first time in recent memory, there is hope in the air.
Swans Fans Were Angry- In A Totally Positive Way How a Common Enemy Helped Guidolin’s side pull of by BarneyLW
A return from the international break, which in truth was needed to clear the air around the club. A frustrating transfer market compounded and exacerbated back-to-back defeats against Hull City and the champions, Leicester. Boardroom shake-ups and a tough run of games has given the Jack Army little to be optimistic about.
