'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Chainrai confirmed as chairman

After Balram Chainrai, Levi Kushnir and Deepak Chainrai concluded their takeover who would become the chairman was the next thing on the agenda.

The 'rumours' were flying around, with anyone of these men possibly getting this title...

Kushnir was the one that was expected to get this although The Pompey Site has now confirmed that it is in fact Balram Chainrai who has landed this role.

This decided at a boardroom meeting on Wednesday: 'I am delighted to take up this appointment and to play my part in the rebuilding process of the club.'

He said he wanted to be at the game tomorrow, which looks likely to be our biggest turnout for sometime, but business commitments will prevent this so the next home game after this will be the first attended as the new owner and chairman.

Even so they will be following from afar and hope that our rise continues: 'unfortunately both Levi and I have important business commitments overseas this weekend that we have not been able to re-arrange, so we cannot be at the game against Nottingham Forest on Saturday.

'We're very disappointed not to be there as it looks like there could be a sell-out crowd, but rest assured we will be cheering on Steve Cotterill and his players from afar and hoping for another win.

'The team have performed superbly and we hope their outstanding form continues and they can keep pushing up the table.

'We very much look forward to being at Fratton Park for the following home game against QPR for what should be a fantastic match.'

I am glad that this is sorted out, and also glad that it would appear that officially on The Pompey Site was the first place that this news was announced, as should be the case with news like this.

    I hope he gets a good reception, and he is able to to a good job for the club. I do not think that there will be much maneuverability with the eyes of the footall world on him, even if he did want to diddle the fans and club. However...if he was to do an outstanding job of turning PFC into a fully functioning Championship/Prem outfit...the dividends for him would be vast...his reputation internationally as a sound and capable businessman would increase , and the asset/ the club would have increased massively on the 20m outlay..

    PompeyM, it was the daily mail and they said it was Levi Kushnir who had been appointed Chairman. They always pounce on anything about Pompey, whether right or wrong, or just making it up.

    it was the express in a newsnow article who said Chan was the man. Mike 1954 The Daily mail repeated DL's "suspision" it would be LK " as he had been heavily involved in the transfers and has more opportunity to be here"- just go's to show what the Chief Exec knows.
