Gaydamak Totally Committed To Pompey

Doubts about Sacha commitment to Pompey have grown in recent times but a statement published on the Official Pompey Website to counter these read as follows.

In response to inaccurate media coverage in some of this morning's national newspapers, Portsmouth Football Club would like to assure fans that owner Alexandre Gaydamak remains totally committed to the future growth and investment of the club.

It is not the club's policy to comment publicly on media speculation but the club would like to assure fans that having invested substantially to take Pompey from relegation strugglers to the verge of a place in Europe, Mr Gaydamak has absolutely no intention of selling the club and is continuing his plans to expand the business and add to the quality of the playing staff both in this January transfer window and again in the summer.

In addition, the club has recently acquired a new 55 acre training ground and purchased more land around Fratton Park.

Portsmouth FC's structure at Board level has also been enhanced with four full-time executive directors for the first time, reporting to Mr Gaydamak.

While other owners are attracted to the media spotlight, Mr Gaydamak would prefer to let his actions both on and off the field do the talking for him
.

I very much hope that this is true and the centre of attention position isn't one that Sacha enjoys, he remains as committed to us as Milan Mandaric said he would be and some big money (but not over the odds amounts and only dealings that will benefit the club) signings will be made in January, starting with a certain Manuel Fernandes at a bargain 6 million?

No smoke without... Let's hope not, the last thing we need is self descrution. ***** the media & the scare stories. Let HR strenghten the squad & then they can all shut up & leave us alone.

my mate in Media street, says AG is frustrated at the time it is taking to get the stadium and other issues sorted, and he had been troubled to secure money backing without the aid of his father. the Chisick resignation issue was more to do with a change of heart regards Storrie's position.

Show me one pompey fan who isn't frustrated with the time it is taking to sort a new stadium... I'll be old, grey, maybe even bald, in fact maybe even dead by the time we get one...
