Profile

After weeks of speculation, Southampton finally parted ways with Claude Puel mid-way through June. The Frenchman took charge of the club a year before, signing a three-year deal at St Mary's. However, he did not even have a chance to celebrate his work anniversary on LinkedIn.

It was Puel's first managerial position in England, having previously only worked in France with Nice, Lyon, Lille, and Monaco. Puel led the Saints to the EFL Cup final and an 8th place finish.

Mauricio Pellegrino is now the red hot favourite to replace Puel, and is widely expected to bag the job in the next few days.

Over the years Southampton have produced a number of talented young players, including Theo Walcott, Gareth Bale, and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain. Unfortunately the Hampshire outfit have not been able to hold onto these stars as the lure of the Premier League's top clubs has been too strong. Although this is something the club have been determined to stop.

Former manager Nigel Adkins led the club to back-to-back promotions from League One up to the Premier League. Adkins built together a decent team who employ fast, attacking football, leading the Saints to Johnsone's Paint trophy glory in 2010.
