Southampton in talks with Hughes

14 March 2018

Eight games to the end of the season, relegation threatened Southampton football club of England have parted ways with their head coach, Mauricio Pellegrino.

Whoever takes up the role will have a hard job on their hands to keep them in the English top-flight, especially as they still have to face Arsenal, Chelsea, and Manchester City.

With Palace and West Ham on awful runs of form they are right in amongst it as well, maybe the Hammers now having the look of a club who unexpectedly collapses at the end of a season. Click the right arrow above to see who the favourite is, according to SunBet odds...

Mark Hughes is the leading candidate to succeed Mauricio Pellegrino as the Southampton manager.

The Club hope to have a new Manager in place before facing Wigan on Sunday for a place in the semi final of the English FA Cup.

Argentine coach, Pellegrino was appointed 9 months ago, but a 3-0 defeat in the hands of Newcastle on Saturday, seems to have informed the club's decision to end its relationship with the former Argentine worldwide.

The 54-year-old's extensive experience in the Premier League is attractive to Southampton, whose need for an upturn in results is urgent. There have been a few must-win games that Southampton have not won.

Former Watford boss Marco Silva instantly emerged as the frontrunner to succeed the Argentine on Monday night. As for Puel, he is now in charge at Leicester who, ironically, are eighth in the Premier League, the position that Saints were when they fired the Frenchman.

They now have only one win in seven and have conceded 11 goals in the last three matches, plus there is total civil war breaking out between fans and club.

He has also managed Wales, Manchester City, Blackburn Rovers Fulham and Queens Park Rangers - and is behind only Arsène Wenger, Sir Alex Ferguson, Harry Redknapp, David Moyes and Sam Allardye on the list of most Premier League games.
