Southampton have appointed Ralph Krueger as the club’s new chairman, Sky Sports has reported.

Krueger was formerly special adviser to the Canada Olympic hockey team who won gold at the Sochi Winter Olympics earlier this year. He has also held positions as Switzerland’s Head Coach and the NHL’s Edmonton Oilers.


“I am honoured to take on the role of chairman of Southampton Football Club and the group,” Krueger said.


“We will continue to nurture 'The Southampton Way' by reaching for consistent growth in all departments to ultimately build a culture that allows Southampton to remain healthy and sustainable in the future.”


Krueger replaces Nicola Cortese, who left the Saints in January. Cortese arrived at Southampton at the time Markus Liebherr bought the club in 2009 and remained after Liebherr passed away a year later.


Southampton, under Coach Mauricio Pochettino, are currently ninth in the Premier League, with 42 points from 29 games.


Krueger is a Canadian-born German national and coached the Oilers for a year between 2012 and 2013. The 54-year-old won 19 and lost 22 games as Oilers Coach.
