Southampton FC have sacked manager Mark Hughes. The Welshman was drafted in last season to keep the Saints in the Premier League and he succeeded in doing just that. However, the current campaign has been a disappointing one for a team which pays, on average, the 11th highest wage per player of any club in the top flight. So, the search for a new manager is already under way, but who are the contenders to be the next man in the St. Mary’s dugout. We’ve looked at a few candidates.
