The news we have all been waiting for has finally been confirmed – Mauricio Pellegrino is no longer the manager of Southampton Football Club.

Saints currently sit in 17th place on the Premier League table and have won just five games all season. Pellegrino was a huge factor in the club’s recent demise and they will hope to salvage the season in the remaining eight league games.

Pellegrino’s tenure ends on a sour note, with Newcastle United having put the final nail in his coffin on Saturday with a 3-0 win.

So, just who could take over from Pellegrino now that he has finally been relieved of his duties as the manager of Southampton?

I’ve taken a look.
