Southampton have parted ways with manager Mauricio Pellegrino less than a season after he took over the reins at St. Mary's.
The Argentine came to the south coast off the back of a strong season in La Liga last term managing Alavés, succeeding Claude Puel. Puel's sides were often accused of being too negative in possession and lacking a clinical edge and the same accusation has been levelled at Pellegrino since the start of the season. With a tough final eight fixtures of the league season, the Saints sit just one point above the relegation zone. Pellegrino noted that his players seemed to "give up" in the 3-0 loss to Newcastle in GW30 having won just once in 17 matches. In the club's statement Southampton said that the search to find a successor was already underway. Mar 12 - 5:19 PM
