Pellegrino sacked at Southampton



This morning I think many were expecting West Bromwich Albion to announce the departure of manager Alan Pardew; he survived by Southampton boss Pellegrino hasn’t and has left the club having only been appointed during the summer as replacement for current Leicester City boss Claude Puel.
Embed from Getty Images// Their 3-0 defeat at Newcastle two days ago has proved to be the final straw with Southampton having won just once in the league since November and that at bottom club West Brom where they won 3-2.
Pellegrino, the only Premier League manager to have played in the league, never looked the right fit for Southampton. he took over a club that finished eighth last season but are currently outside of the relegation positions by just one point and have 13 points less this season than they did a year ago at this stage of the season. The belief was that he would stay until the end of the season, and his chances improved with Southampton still in the FA Cup and facing a 6th round tie against Wigan, but, in a brief statement tonight, Southampton confirmed his departure along with his assistant Carlos Compagnucci and coach Xavier Tamarit.
Mark Hughes was immediately installed as the favourite for the job but, whilst still in the betting, both Marco Silva and Slaven Bilic are now shorter odds to replace Pellegrino. All three have been sacked by Premier League clubs this season.
