Saints Target Resigns From Current Club !
Monday, 13th Jun 2016 09:26

Saints target Unai Emery has informed his club Sevilla that he wishes to leave, but will his next destination be St Mary's ?

Unai Emery would be the first choice to succeed Ronald Koeman for many Saints supporters and that perhaps moved a step closer when the Spanish manager tendered his resignation to Sevilla yesterday.

Sevilla seem quite relaxed about his departure perhaps suggesting that they have been aware of the situation for some time and they announced at the same time they themselves are in negotiation with Jorge Sampaoli who until January was national team manager of Chile.

This turn of events suggest that Emery is about to sign up wit another club, but is it Saints or Paris St Germain.

Early reports suggest that it is the French club, although Emery has expressed a desire to manage in the Premier League, indeed he is said to have held talks with Everton last month before turning them down, the lure of PSG would seem to be greater, in that although they have dominated the French League having won it for the past four seasons, they are desperate to land the Champions League and are willing to spend big to do it.

They are therefore willing to pay Emery big bucks to do it, however perhaps the Spaniard will be disuaded from a move to the Parc Des Princes in the fact that PSG are walking the French League and that will not be a challenge, his task would be solely to land that Champions League trophy.

Either way it seems that in a day or so we will know whether Emery is Southampton bound or is out of the running.

It's far more likely that he's going to PSG; they certainly seem very confident about it out here, and as you observe, they have pots of cash and are in the Champions League.

In any case, if he did come to St Mary's, we can be pretty sure he'd be yet another manager just using us as a stepping stone to a so called "big" premiership club. I'd far rather we appoint someone who would show us some loyalty and stay long enough to really build somethi

Don't we need to know that Koeman is definitely leaving first?

sorry froggysaint - isnt what you are saying incredibly negative? Basically can we have a manager that no-one else wants ?

Why would he come here. He's won the Europa several times with Seville. I guess he wants to move up and challenge for the CL so PSG makes far more sense than a sideways move to us.

Why even write this? The whole football world knows that he's joining PSG. Koeman is also not coming back to Saints. I get the impression that half of you, if a huge meteorite was heading for Earth, would just stare at it telling yourselves it's gonna change course in a second. From what I hear, RK leaving gives us better hope of keeping some of our better players, obviously depending on who the new man is.

He's off to PSG, but it's nice to speculate. Also nice to write an article linking a highly rated manager with either going to a huge champions league club or coming here! Shows some progression from those League One days at least!

There is a lot of scuttlebutt on social media at the moment suggestion that Koeman was actually trying to use Everton interest to get a better deal with Saints - but it has backfired. Personally speaking, without evidence (and i don' t meant the classic 'my mate's mate works at the club and he's heard..') this is comes across as sour grapes from Saints fans. But it is true: nothing has been officially announced and so Koeman is still Saints manager.

It is increasingly strange to see Koeman go off on holiday without signing the biggest contract of his managerial career to date and then delay things further. Hardly sending the right signal to Everton fans is it?

In the unlikely event that RK sacks his agent and tells us he loves us and wants to stay we should insist he signs a contract for at least another THREE years.
