13 July 2011 press conference
Andy Crosby takes press conference
Andy can you confirm the reason why Lewis is not attending his first press conference?
He is away looking at new players to bring to the club
Could that be to find a replacement for Alex chamberlain?
Lewis has stated Chamberlain will not be leaving the club we have had not had bids for the player.
How have the players taken to the new manager?
At first there was a bit of uncertainty but he is a young man who gets on with the players well.
Can you give us an idea on the kind of players you are looking to bring to the club?
We want to get out of this league and some good experience would help that.
I will not be taking anyone questions
Southampton make first dip into transfer market to capture South African international. Tshabalala the fast young left midfielder joins for 140k from Kaiser Chiefs just a day after a Chamberlain bid was rejected. Manager Lewis had this to say about the deal “he is a fantastic signing he played at the world cup and is great with the ball at his feet” speaking at the prospect of Chamberlain leaving he said “ he is close to signing a contract to stay at the club for the last three years”
Saints decline Man City an offer Lewis has claimed the 60k offer for Chamberlain is an insult to them and the league. “just because they are a premier league club does not mean they can pinch players at will”
