Saints sack Pellegrino

Struggling Premier League club Southampton sacked Argentinian manager Mauricio Pellegrino on Monday with only eight matches left in the season.

Pellegrino took over at St Mary's on a three-year deal last June, but Southampton announced in a statement that they had parted ways with the 46-year-old with the club only one point above the relegation zone.

"The club will look to appoint a new management team as soon as possible, with the search for a replacement already underway," the statement added.

A disastrous run of form that has seen the Saints win only one of their last 17 Premier League matches always appeared likely to end in Pellegrino's demise.
