Southampton part company with manager Pellegrino

Rafa Benitez took on Jose Mourinho a few weeks ago

Southampton have parted company with their Argentine manager Mauricio Pellegrino after just one win in their last 17 Premier League games, the south-coast club said on Monday. The Saints now sit one place and a point above the relegation zone.

Pellegrino, a former Argentina worldwide, was appointed in June as the successor to Claude Puel.

Mauricio Pellegrino rolled the dice with two substitutes but any work he put into motion was undone as Matt Ritchie scored Newcastle their third with a sublime low effort on the hour. However, it is fair to say that the former Liverpool defender struggled to find his feet as St Mary's.

Facing a rival for relegation it was all the more important for Newcastle to triumph, and the defeat for Southampton has pushed them further into trouble.

"Unfortunately in the last couple of seasons, that hasn't been the case".
