Doubts are now surrounding whether Mauricio Pochettino, Southampton's football manager, will remain at the club.
It's after Nicola Cortese resigned from his post as Chief Executive yesterday.
Katharina Liebherr has now taken on the role of non-executive chairman, with the search having begun for a new chief executive.
There are speculations that Cortese actually tendered his resignation in the autumn, with talks about the 45-year-old Italian considering his position back in May.
At that time, Pochettino warned he would leave Southampton if Cortese chose to do so.
In May, he said, "I would not understand staying in this role if Nicola was not here."
