Under-fire chairman Milan Mandaric will not quit Leicester City despite their relegation to League One, according to the club's chief executive Paul Aldridge.
The Foxes slipped into the third tier of English football for the first time in their history after a goalless draw with Stoke City at the weekend.
But despite presiding over a disastrous campaign in which he has appointed three different managers, the former Portsmouth owner will not be walking away from the Walkers Stadium.
"Milan is bitterly disappointed and feels for each and every supporter of the club," Aldridge told the club's official website.
"Of course, this was not the plan he had in mind for the club when he took charge, but he will be back in the country later this week and is determined to come back fighting and help this club bounce back.
"He is a winner, not a quitter, and I will support him in every way I can.
"We will now quickly reflect on our position and then get fully focused on the important job of initially returning to the Championship and our long-term objective of regaining our Premier League status."
