Cortese Close to Quitting Southampton After Another Bust Up With Owner Liebherr: Nightly Soccer Report

Here we go again. Southampton Chairman Nicola Cortese, who is one of the main reasons behind the club’s success in the Premier League, is close to quitting the club after a bust up with club owner Katharina Liebherr.

It was only last May when Southampton manager Mauricio Pochettino threatened to quit the club if Cortese left, so you can understand why Saints fans are nervous tonight. If Cortese does leave the club this time, will Pochettino leave soon too?

It’s understood that Cortese is planning his exit strategy to leave the club.

Meanwhile, on a different topic entirely, Aston Villa manager Paul Lambert has signed striker Grant Holt today on loan from Wigan Athletic for the remainder of the season. The former Norwich City footballer who played under Lambert at Carrow Road is meant to help solve Villa’s goalscoring crisis up front given the lackluster form of Christian Benteke and the injuries to key players. However, if Lambert thinks Holt is the solution, he’s sadly mistaken. Villa have budget considerations to adhere to, but that doesn’t mean that Lambert has to sign someone like Holt on loan. There are far more footballers out there who are better than Holt who can be acquired on loan.
