Southampton have announced the appointment of Gareth Rogers as the club’s interim chief executive officer with immediate effect.

Rogers, Southampton’s chief financial officer, assumes the executive duties of Nicola Cortese, who resigned his position as chairman last week, sparking speculation over the future of manager Mauricio Pochettino.

The Argentinian had previously suggested he would leave the club if Cortese departed, but subsequently committed his future to Southampton.

Owner Katharina Liebherr, who assumed Cortese’s position as chairman last week, welcomed Rogers’ promotion.

“I am delighted that Gareth has agreed to step into this role,” said Liebherr.

“After the events of the past week, my priority has been to bring stability to the management of the club and I am pleased that we have been able to make this appointment from within.

“We had a very positive meeting with all the staff of the club on Monday and I am sure Gareth’s appointment will be warmly received.”

Rogers added: “I am very pleased to be able to help the club by stepping up to the CEO’s job on an interim basis.

“We have a fantastic staff and everyone is working together to make sure the club ends the season as strongly as possible.”
