Club Statement: Eric Black

By SFC Media time Fri 30 Sep Club

Further to our statement on Thursday in relation to The Daily Telegraph's on-going investigation, and in keeping with our chairman's call for total transparency, Southampton Football Club would like to provide an update on this matter.

Having reviewed the limited facts provided in The Daily Telegraph this morning, the club wrote to the newspaper again, requesting a full transcript of the meeting Eric Black attended on 2nd September.

This request has so far not been granted, and the facts that are presented only in the media are unclear and incomplete.

The club continues to take any situation relating to our employees very seriously, and we will undertake a full internal review, working closely with The FA and The Premier League.

We would like to place on record that Eric remains an employee of Southampton Football Club and, like any other employee here, will be afforded respect and support in this matter.

The club values the support of our fans and in addition, like any employer, appreciates the hard work and dedication of our staff members.

Southampton Football Club is totally committed to the strong values and culture that our fans and staff share, and will continue to provide full support to any initiative that improves the game we love and treasure.
