Mark Hughes is the leading candidate for the vacant managerial position after Southampton prioritised the need for Premier League experience and an immediate ability to galvanise their flagging squad. The 54-year-old has managed Stoke, QPR, Fulham, Man City and Blackburn without ever being relegated from the top-flight, although it's fair to say that after the sleep-inducing football under Claude Puel and Pellegrino, Hughes doesn't represent the most inspiring of appointments. He had previously been at Alaves.

The Argentine coach was only appointed last summer but has overseen a disappointing campaign with the Saints now just one point outside the relegation zone.

Pellegrino was only appointed as manager last June, but failed to get any sort of consistency going, and Southampton are now in 17th place in the league, having won only 1 of their last 17 matches.

"Assistant manager Carlos Compagnucci and assistant first-team coach Xavier Tamarit have also parted company with the club".

"You can lose, you can play badly, but you have to show another face on the pitch".

His being eligible is the reason coach Avery Johnson has Alabama back in the NCAAs and why the Crimson Tide are fun to watch. It last won two NCAA Tournament games in 1967. "I've been told that doesn't matter at all", Calipari said facetiously.


Another win in three weeks time against Huddersfield and I think the bookies would see NUFC as totally safe, though Rafa's players would still have to then add the necessary extra few points afterwards to back up that opinion. "This is the worst thing that we did today".

Former Hull boss Marco Silva is the early favourite to replace Pellegrino after being sacked by Watford earlier this season.

Saints will be hoping to appoint Pellegrino's successor quickly, with an FA Cup quarter-final at Wigan looming on Sunday.

But Southampton had expected far better this season, after three consecutive top-eight finishes.

But scoring has been their biggest problem all season, with Charlie Austin their top-scorer with only six goals in all competitions.
