David Lampitt is in a bit of a hurry to get Pompey’s new manager in place – and it looks like he may not wait until creditors agree on proposals which will set out the club’s future more clearly.

The club’s new chief executive says there is nothing in the rulebook that means they must wait for the CVA to be put in place before appointing a successor to Avram Grant.


Lampitt told the BBC: ‘There is nothing per se that says we have to wait for the CVA or act before it. But from my point of view, the priority is we do it as soon as possible.

Lampitt said the new manager would need to be someone who understood the role the club played as a key component of the city, and appreciate the role of the fans.

‘The supporters here are incredibly loyal and incredibly knowledgeable and incredibly passionate about their club, and therefore it's important that a manager can engage with that.’

Steve Cotterill appears favourite to take over from Grant, who has now been installed at West Ham and is reportedly keen to take his Fratton backroom staff to Upton Park – although Paul Groves has said he is keen to stay with Pompey and work with the new man. deals
