Yesterday’s result was hugely disappointing having fought so well in recent months for Premier League survival. Myself and everyone at the Club feels the pain of relegation and we also know how much supporters are affected too. We have one more game remaining in our Premier League campaign and every effort will be made to ensure we end it at the KCOM Stadium on a positive note.
Despite my disappointment at suffering relegation, I cannot praise Marco Silva and his staff enough for the job they have done since arriving at the Club in January. At that time, with the Club sitting at the foot of the table, many had completely written off our survival chances, but Marco came in and gave everyone hope with improved results and performances. Although we have ultimately fallen short in our goal to remain in the Premier League, the improvement seen in the team under Marco’s leadership has been clear for all to see.
Going forward, I will provide more frequent communication to supporters over the summer as we all rebuild for the challenge ahead.
