Once again for the umpteenth time this year, let alone season, Pompey have been forced to issue another official statement to counter claims made in the national media today.

Below is what the Pompey Sites statement said…

==========

PORTSMOUTH FOOTBALL CLUB STATEMENT

Portsmouth Football Club would like to respond to unfounded reports in the media concerning the sale of the club.

The reports inaccurately allege Pompey’s owner, Alexandre Gaydamak, has halved his asking price for the club. This claim is false and misleading.

All figures concerning the price of the club remain confidential.

Comments attributed to Pompey’s executive chairman, Peter Storrie, have been taken out of context and were not intended for the media.

They were gained surreptitiously at a fans’ forum by local Portsmouth newspaper The News, who attended the forum despite being banned from all club premises and events.

No statements or answers to questions regarding these matters were ever given to the media.

Journalists continue to write about Pompey without checking their facts or seeking comments from the club.
