Portsmouth’s future has been cast into fresh uncertainty after the Sicilian-American businessman Joseph Cala announced on Friday that he was withdrawing his takeover bid and the club’s administrator criticised him for wasting its time.

Cala told the The News in Portsmouth that his interest in buying the Championship club had ended, having maintained a day earlier that he was “95% sure” of taking control.

“I am very sad. I will have to take a sabbatical,” Cala said on Friday. “Pompey for me was the name itself. It’s something I have always loved. When I thought of Pompey, I thought of Pompeii, one of my favourite cities in the world.

“What really touched me was when I went to the stadium and was watching the fans before the match and they were really behind the club all the way. And when Southampton scored the goal first they never called the players losers. It was really fun.”

CSI’s administrator, Andrew Andronikou, was dismissive of Cala’s involvement. “I am not concerned,” he said. “We have got other people and we don’t have to waste any more time with individuals that want to generate column inches.”
