Southampton's Mauricio Pochettino on Nicola Cortese exit

Southampton manager Mauricio Pochettino says in May 2013 that "of course I would not continue if (chairman) Nicola Cortese weren't here".

The Argentine, who was appointed by Cortese, made the comments at the end of last season when Cortese's future was in doubt.

Pochettino is expected to fulfil his media commitments on Thursday following Cortese's resignation on Wednesday.
