Struggling Southampton sack manager Pellegrino

Struggling Southampton sack manager Pellegrino

The Brazilian, who is now on loan with Premier League counterparts Newcastle United, scored his first goal for the club in the second minute of the Magpies' clash with Southampton at St. James' Park earlier today.

Under Pellegrino, Southampton have not won a home Premier League fixture since November and their only victory since then came in the form of a 3-2 triumph at fellow strugglers West Brom.

Southampton have parted ways with manager Mauricio Pellegrino, the club confirmed on Monday.

Meanwhile, Southampton manager Mauricio Pellegrino - who played for Benitez at Valencia and Liverpool and also served on his coaching staff at Anfield - is under increasing pressure.

Pellegrino took over at St Mary's on a three-year deal last June, but Southampton announced in a statement that they had parted company with the 46-year-old with the club only one place and one point above the relegation zone.

"We will do everything we can; I have said it before that the club cannot go down, we have to stay up". Newcastle are hopeful Jonjo Shelvey can play a part after he returned to training but the midfielder faces a late fitness test ahead of the weekend's game.

"We have to say sorry to our fans because we didn't represent the values of the club".

Newcastle have now embarked on a three-week gap without a game because of a combination of the FA Cup quarter-finals and the forthcoming worldwide break.

"We've got Southampton on Saturday and we have to be really confident going into it".

Pellegrino was appointed last June after Claude Puel's departure but endured a hard campaign, with Southampton's run of five straight seasons finishing 14th or above nearly guaranteed to come to an end this year. The former Watford manager Marco Silva is among the possible candidates, although it is understood he is considering a return to Portugal this summer.
