Mark Hughes 'favourite for Southampton job'

Mark Hughes 'favourite for Southampton job'

After 30 games in charge, and just five League wins, Southampton have sacked Mauricio Pellegrino, leaving Everton fans begging the Saints" to take "Big Sam' Allardyce off of their hands. Hovering just one spot above the relegation zone Southampton are in danger of losing the top-flight status they acquired six seasons ago.

Welshman Mark Hughes was firming as the bookmakers' favourite to replace Mauricio Pellegrino as the south coast club's manager.

"As far as the situation we are in at the moment, I think it makes sense to go with someone who has Premier League experience - who doesn't have to get to know a new set of players".

"I think that was probably something that, looking back with hindsight, the club would probably regret, trying to keep him in the summer", said Le Tissier, who scored 209 goals for Southampton during his 16 years at the club.

"The club will look to appoint a new management team as soon as possible, with the search for a replacement already underway".

Team India wicket-keeper MS Dhoni said that Shami is a great human being and he is not someone who will cheat his wife or country. On match fixing charges, he had said, "I will prefer to die than involved in such anti-national act".

The Times says that top of Southampton's wishlist to succeed Pellegrino is Marco Silva, the former Watford and Hull City head coach, but he is in advanced talks with Benfica over a two-year deal.

Hughes guided Stoke to top 10 finishes for three successive seasons from 2013 to 2016 but the club was in the relegation zone when he was sacked after an FA Cup third round defeat at the hands of League Two (fourth tier) Coventry City.

Hughes has been earmarked as a manager who could have an immediate impact, but who could also implement a longer-term philosophy which would enable more young players to come through the ranks.

But rather than opt for a short-term option until the end of the season, The Daily Echo reports that Southampton are instead eager to find a long-term successor for Pellegrino.
