Milan To Leave Pompey Monday

Milan To Leave Pompey Monday

Milan Mandaric will step down as Pompey chairmen Monday. Bolton at home will be his last match at Pompey.

"My last match as Chairman will be against Bolton and though it will be a very emotional occasion for me I will leave immensely satisfied and happy about what I have achieved and whose hands I leave this club in," Mandaric told the club's website.

"Already Alexandre Gaydamak has made his own impressive mark on the club which I fully expected and applaud. "It is now right that a man who is fiercely committed to the interests of Portsmouth F.C. and its fans should be allowed to pen his own exclusive chapter as he takes things to the new heights I know he will achieve.

"This is the established Premier League side which I promised when I came and from that establishment there are now new heights to reach which Alexandre will take the club onwards and upwards to.

"I will always be just a phone call away and will only too happily advise and help should the club need. I also hope to come back to matches as often as possible so in that sense it is not goodbye, but merely au revoir. This club and its supporters can never leave my heart whatever I go on to do in football, whether it be in this country or across the world, and both will always be part of me and my life."

Vital Pompey will run tribute articles on Monday.

Think where we are now, remember where we were & imagine where we could have been without him. In our lifetime we shall never forget him. There are not enough 'Thank yous' to begin to say how much he has done for the club & the city of Portsmouth.

Storagematt your comments are echoed by me and thousands of other Pompey fans worldwide. We were heading for the abyss, oblivion when this unknown man stepped in. And to leave when we are on the top of the Premiership must give him a great feeling of achievemnet.

So it looks like he is off overseas by what he is saying and from memory he had links to some little team in the Meditterainian. Maybe its time for a stand or something to get a new name.

Mandaric has been the biggest star at Pompey over the last five years without any doubt. His influence and financial backing have transformed not only the club but also the city.

An unexpected visitor

Pompey's Burgess was clearly at a loose end when the game at Crawley was postponed. That much was initially obviously with the level of desire to be involved in footie later revealed.

Cook - no need for a prolific marksman

Cook has said Pompey's lack of a 25 goal striker - I still think we have one - isn't going to impact on our promotion chances. I can see both sides of Cookie's opinion here to be fair.
