Portsmouth CEO Mark Catlin has completely dismissed the idea of Kenny Jackett being sacked, as shown on the club’s official channels.
Catlin was speaking during the club’s Q&A for August, with the manager’s future being an almost inevitable topic, considering Pompey sit 18th in the table:
“We want stability consistently across our management structure”

There have been various contributions to the frustration surrounding the manager, as indicated by the response to the comments, including the style of play, results and treatment of players.
While there does not seem to be any questioning of Jackett from the board, there is plenty from the fans, with the expectation being that the club simply must do better when they return to action.
A selection of Twitter reaction to the comments, including posts from unimpressed Portsmouth fans, can be seen below:

I’ll ask you that again in a few months when we’ve wasted yet another season. Catlin has been the best employee at this club in recent history but I completely disagree on this one.

Not sure this is enough to get people back on board. Such an awful watch with his approach. Slightly patronising here?

Trouble is Mark, KJ shows no respect for his players, he treats them like commodities. That won’t build a happy and settled team.

1 win in 10 league games, the footballs boring,think everyone’s comfortable earning a decent wage on the board and management.

Only thing I can see being consistent is being in league one

Even though his win % is highest the style of football is only just bearable when we win but when we are drawing/loosing its really hard to watch, its boring, his defensive approach gives teams the chance to put us under so much pressure and it keeps costing us
