"We will participate completely in the process to make sure that this is an opportunity for English football," Krueger said Thursday night after a 2-1 setback to Canada, which won the best-of-three series 2-0. "In regards to the situation with Eric, it's a personal issue for him. It has nothing directly to do with us as a club, but we will take proper procedure in the process."
"The club has been on a constant path of growth since the arrival of (the late owner) Markus Liebherr in 2009," Saints chairman Ralph Krueger said. "This growth took place before Mauricio came, it continued strongly under his leadership, and it will continue into the next season."
