Profile

Southampton are managed by Claude Puel who took charge during in June 2016, signing a three-year deal at St Mary's. It's 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, losing a 3-2 thriller to Man Utd, while he's currently bidding to secure a top-10 finish.

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.
