Struggling Southampton fires manager Mauricio Pellegrino

Pellegrino sacked: Southampton target Marco Silva as next manager Southampton counting cost of selling stars year on year
Frederick Owens | 13 March, 2018, 13:15

The Saints are mired in a relegation battle right now, and it seems nearly impossible that Rodgers would give up clinching another treble for a survival scrap, meaning Southampton may need other targets in mind.

Former Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers, veteran Martin O'Neill and Koeman, who was named the new Netherlands coach last month, were among the outsiders for the job listed by bookmakers Skybet.

The 46-year-old has paid the price for a dismal run of form that has seen the Saints win just one of their past 17 matches.

"We would like to place on record our thanks to Mauricio, Carlos and Xavier for their efforts during their time with Southampton, and wish them well for the future", the statement said.

The sacking of Pellegrino raises questions once more about Southampton's decision to fire Puel last summer.

"The club will look to appoint a new management team as soon as possible, with the search for a replacement already under way".

"There are all sorts of managers mentioned; Mark Hughes has a lot of Premier League experience and I think that will count in his favour".

Le Tissier, who played 443 league games for Southampton over a 17-year stint, added blame should not just lie at the door of the manager, and wants the next boss to bring fresh impetus to the under-performing players.

They are in the FA Cup quarter-finals but have five away games out of their last eight in the league.

Like Hughes, Silva was sacked by a Premier League club in January - in his case Watford - and he has also been linked with a move back home to Portugal to take over at Benfica next season.

And to think, they sacked Claude Puel for finishing 8th.
