Cotterill reluctant to set targets

Published Add your comment

Portsmouth's new manager Steve Cotterill said he cannot set Pompey any targets for the 2010/11 season until he knows which players will still be at Fratton Park in August.

The 45-year-old, who has signed a three-year deal with Portsmouth, was unveiled as the club's new boss on Friday following Avram Grant's departure.

"I don't know the answer to that yet. I don't want to be negative with it, but I don't want to be over-positive with it," said Cotterill. "I think once I know what group of players we have for the season, which will be at the end of August, I'll have a better idea of what our aims and aspirations can be for the season."

Portsmouth's creditors voted overwhelmingly in favour of a Company Voluntary Arrangement on Thursday, which should see the club exit administration.
