Crouch quotes disappoint Storrie

Peter Storrie
Storrie led negotiations for Sulaiman Al Fahim's takeover

Portsmouth executive chairman Peter Storrie is unhappy with striker Peter Crouch's criticism of the club having not yet appointed a manager.

Pompey are in the middle of a takeover and Crouch said that they have taken a backward step and that he is concerned about having no new manager in place.

But Storrie told BBC Radio Solent: "Anybody in their right mind knows we're in due diligence.

"That means the club are technically in limbo for a month."

Storrie continued: "I'm surprised. I think Peter must have been caught off guard on these sort of comments. I'm sure if I speak to Peter he will tell me he didn't actually say it that way.

"It's very disappointing, but anybody and everybody who knows anything about the takeover of a business knows there's nothing you can do for a month whilst this is all going on."
