THE joint-administrator of Pompey’s parent company has spoken of his search to find the right person to take over the club.
Andrew Andronikou, who was appointed joint-administrator of Convers Sports Initiatives, said he was ‘quietly optimistic’ of finding someone to buy Pompey.
He said: ‘We are still going through the process of building interest and filtering it out at the same time.
‘I wouldn’t want to put out any names at the moment. We will try to sit down with someone who fits the bill.
‘It’s still early days but we are quietly optimistic.’
When asked if the Pompey players would be paid next month, Mr Andronikou said: ‘We’re working hard to deal with all liabilities and we are taking it one month at a time.
‘We’re pretty confident this month will be OK and we will look towards the next one.
‘It’s going well so far. I have no real complaints and I’m quietly optimistic for a solution for everyone.
‘I’ll be watching the game (against Southampton) on Sunday.
‘It is a big one and a chance to forget about what’s happening off the pitch.’
