Crouch appeals to supporters to save Saints
Former Southampton chairman Leon Crouch has given an honest warning regarding the future of the club.
Crouch, 59, has warned supporters that the club they love could not make it to the end of the season.
In a personal statement on the official website, Crouch had this to say:
'Saints' long history is in serious danger of coming to an abrupt halt if we do not act quickly to help raise the money that is desperately needed to ensure the survival of the Club until a buyer can be found.'
'We have found ourselves in the most perilous position imaginable, but the time has come for all of us to look beyond the short-term reasons for that failure and instead look at guaranteeing the Club's long-term survival.'
Crouch has urged supporters to buy tickets for what is a huge game on Saturday against Burnley.
The club need all the money they can get, and a full house on Saturday will be a big step to getting the funds to see out the season.
However, on the pitch, Southampton find themselves in a tragic position too, sitting in 23rd place and four points of safety.
In the week, Saints boss Mark Wotte said 'we need a miracle to stay up' but the main priority is having a team to support next season.
