Southampton next manager odds: The favourites to replace sacked boss Mauricio Pellegrino

Nathan Redmond of Southampton looks dejected after the Premier League match between Newcastle United and Southampton at St. James Park

Saints hope to have a new manager in place before facing Wigan on Sunday for a place in the FA Cup semi-finals.

Pellegrino was hired on a three-year deal in June of 2017 after Claude Puel was let go at the club.

Saturday's humiliating 3-0 defeat at relegation rivals Newcastle was the final straw and prompted talks between members of the Saints hierarchy during the remainder of the weekend and yesterday that ended with him being told he was being dismissed before the squad were informed of the change.

They are in their sixth successive season in the Premier League and have not finished lower than 14th in any of the previous five.

― Reuters picLONDON, March 13 ― Southampton's refusal to sell defender Virgil van Dijk in the close season had disrupted their Premier League campaign which ultimately led to manager Mauricio Pellegrino being sacked, former club captain Matt Le Tissier has said.

DJ Jeffries Is Coming To Kentucky
He picked the Cats over Alabama and Mississippi State and is Calipari's first commitment in the 2019 recruiting class. Jeffries was also offered a scholarship by Kansas, Texas A&M and Memphis , among others.

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

Pellegrino paid the price for overseeing a disastrous run of results that left Southampton in huge relegation danger and was given the boot by the south coast club.

They are the ninth Premier League team to change their manager this season.

"They tried to do the right thing by the fans, in terms of not selling their best player every season, but sadly that did appear to backfire, and that situation probably didn't help the performances in the first half of the season".
