Southampton sack Manuel Pellegrino after dismal run

Southampton sack Manuel Pellegrino after dismal run

Pellegrino, a former Argentina worldwide, secured the equivalent of 0.93 points per game, the third-worst tally of any Southampton manager in the Premier League.

The 46-year-old Pellegrino joined on a three-year deal in June last year, weeks after leaving Spanish team Alaves.

Southampton have sacked manager Mauricio Pellegrino.

Assistant coaches Carlos Compagnucci and Xavier Tamarit have also left the club. The club sit 17th in the league on 28 points, a point ahead of Crystal Palace and Stoke, with eight games left to play.

A statement issued on Monday evening confirming Pellegrino's backroom staff have also been let go read: "Southampton Football Club can today confirm that it has parted company with first team manager Mauricio Pellegrino".

They have won just five league games this season and their 3-2 victory at West Bromwich Albion, who are bottom of the table, in February is their only league win since November.

"We would like to place on record our thanks to Mauricio, Carlos and Xavier for their efforts during their time with Southampton", it continued.

Southampton visit third-tier Wigan Athletic in the FA Cup quarter-finals on Sunday but their next league game is March 31 at relegation rivals West Ham United. The match was billed as a crucial encounter in the relegation battle but Saints performed poorly and were easily beaten by Rafa Benitez's side, and afterwards Pellegrino admitted his players "gave up" after falling behind.

Pellegrino's sacking has been something that has seemingly been in the pipeline for a matter of months, with Southampton fans having expressed their displeasure with the Argentine for most of the season.

Silva has been linked with Portguese giants Benfica for next season, but it remains to be seen if he could turn down the chance to return to the Premier League.
