Pochettino staying with Saints

first_imgMauricio Pochettino has decided not to walk away from Southampton in the wake of executive chairman Nicola Cortese’s exit. Press Association Sport understands Cortese harbours deep ambitions to take up another post in English football. The 45-year-old is also clearly keen to reprise his double-act with Pochettino, with sources describing the duo as having a very strong bond. There is every likelihood that former Argentina defender Pochettino will bide his time until the end of the season, by which time there may be a prospect of a reunion with the man who brought him to Southampton in January 2013. Cortese’s resignation is believed to have been based around a difference of vision on Southampton’s long-term future. Suggestions the departed executive chairman had fallen out with the owners over salary or share options are believed to be wide of the mark. Liebherr has pledged to appoint a chief executive to replace Cortese in the long run, but Pochettino admitted he does not yet know who will handle day-to-day affairs, such as transfer dealings. “It’s still too soon to talk about this (who deals with transfers), we will see in the future how the tasks are unfolded at this club, who does what at this club,” Pochettino said. “I’m sure the club will designate a person to speak to about all of that.” Manchester City are among a group of clubs that could make lucrative bids for teenage defender Luke Shaw, while England striker Rickie Lambert has been linked with a move to West Ham this month. Pochettino said he is not aware of any bid for Shaw, but vowed no-one that he wants to keep will leave the club. “I want to make one thing clear: no-one is for sale at Southampton, no-one,” he said. “No player that I don’t want to leave will leave this club.” The Saints manager stopped short on Thursday of committing beyond the end of the season, however, and to the full 17 months remaining on his contract. Admitting he cannot be definitive about his long-term future at the club, Pochettino said: “It’s very hard to say at the moment, I think it’s very soon to say about that.” In acknowledging surprise at Cortese’s Wednesday night resignation, the 41-year-old Southampton coach revealed his former boss told him not to follow suit and leave St Mary’s. Pochettino has met with Southampton owner Katharina Liebherr, who has installed herself as non-executive chairman and offered her backing to the club’s current coaching staff. “What’s quite clear is I have a very good relationship with Nicola Cortese,” Pochettino said. “He agrees with my decision to stay and there’s nothing more I can say about that right now. “He only asked me for one thing and that’s to try to win on Saturday (against Sunderland). “I don’t know (why he decided to leave), it’s quite difficult to say, I found out yesterday as you did about his decision. “Of course it has surprised me quite a bit, the same as other people at the club.” The conversation with Liebherr was short, but apparently reassuring. “I met her for five minutes, she told me we have her full support. She wants the club to be stable and that we need to look forward to the future,” Pochettino said. Press Associationlast_img read more

Telegraph titles for England players

first_img14 Oct 2013 Telegraph titles for England players England junior internationals Ashton Turner and Alice Hewson won the boys’ and girls’ titles respectively in the Telegraph BMW Golf Championship at Quinta do Lago, Portugal. Turner, from Kenwick Park in Lincolnshire, overturned a four-shot deficit to win, while Alice Hewson won a battle with childhood friend Samantha Fuller on the final green in front of a 100-strong gallery. Turner, 17, who revealed in the week that he turned down an X Factor live audition to focus on his golf, admitted that he came here to prove a point after finishing fifth in last year’s finals, won by the world’s leading amateur Matthew Fitzpatrick. “I really wanted this one and my aim was to come back stronger,” he said after a closing 69. “Fitz’s win last year and what he has achieved since is a target for everyone now.  It is an honour to follow in Matt’s footsteps and recreate what he has done.” At the start of the final round Turner was four shots off the pace set by Algarve resident Nathan Brader – who pitched in from 90-yards to birdie the first.  But by the turn, Turner shared the lead and he moved ahead on the back nine, notably holing out from 10ft and 17ft on the 10th and 15th, where Brader three-putted. Turner finished the event three clear of Hampshire’s Jack Singh Brar, who also signed off with 69, and of Brader. Meanwhile Alice Hewson, from Berkhamsted in Hertfordshire, led throughout the girls’ event. But she had to withstand a strong challenge from fellow girl international Sammy Fuller before she claimed the title. “So stressful!” were the 16-year-old’s first words, as relief poured out when she knew she’d claimed the title by two shots.  Competition was intensely close between the two girls throughout the 54–hole event, as they returned the same score in both the first and last rounds. But Alice claimed a crucial two-shot advantage in the second round. Alice, who has multiple offers from American universities, said: “I couldn’t control what Sammy might do so I took it one shot at a time.” The two junior winners will now tee it up alongside Paul McGinley, the Ryder Cup captain, at next year’s BMW Championship Pro-Am at Wentworth. “I’m just so excited by this,” Alice added.
