Southampton part company with manager Mauricio Pellegrino

Southampton striker Guido Carrillo describes Mauricio Pellegrino as “a master”

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".

Southampton take on Wigan in the FA Cup quarter-finals this Sunday and due to the upcoming worldwide break, they don't have another Premier League match until March 31 when they travel to London to face West Ham United.

Southampton have sacked manager Mauricio Pellegrino.

Savage thinks that Hughes, who has been out of work since getting sacked by Stoke City in January, would help Southampton in the final stretch of eight games.

Last summer Pellegrino, 46, was appointed to replace Claude Puel, who is now manager of eighth-place Leicester City.

Assistant coaches Carlos Compagnucci and Xavier Tamarit have also left the club.

Fertility clinic disaster may have destroyed thousands of frozen eggs, embryos
Between the overnight hours Saturday to Sunday, one of the egg and embryo liquid nitrogen storage tanks began warming up. The failure caused the temperature to rise, ultimately making the eggs and embryos at the facility lose their viability.

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

The south-coast club took action two days after losing 3-0 at Newcastle, following which Pellegrino said some of his players "gave up".

And Southampton have now made a decision to act with the team sitting 17th, just one point above the drop zone with eight games to go.

The Saints have won just one of the last 17 Premier League games, and the search is on for Pellegrino's replacement, with Southampton hovering precariously above the relegation zone.

It's unclear what direction Southampton will take moving forward for the rest of the season, but a number of veteran PL manager remain available.

The defeat at Newcastle was one of the low points of the season for the Saints, with Pellegrino saying after the game: "I haven't seen my team compete in this way this season, without the spirit you need to compete at this level".
