Pellegrini Is Not Saints Choice Say The Daily Echo
Thursday, 23rd Jun 2016 17:10

The Daily Echo are reporting that Manuel Pellegrini is not going to be appointed manager of Southampton Football Club.

The Daily Echo have clearly been briefed by Saints all through the recent situation that has started with Ronald Koeman leaving St Mary's and will end in the next week or so with a new man at the helm.

But that new man will not be Pellegrini say the Echo, they understand that after careful consideration and due dilligence that Saints have decided against bringing in Pellegrini.

Perhaps better news is that the paper also understands that Jurgen Klinsmann is not nor has ever been in the frame.

One man who is is Claude Puel who has again seen his stock rise in the latest betting odds.

The Echo is stating that for this appointment Saints are doing more than just base it on the candidates track record and experience but looking into other factors as well in what will be a very thouroughly researched appointment when it does happen.

The club are still working to a timetable of an appointment before pre season training starts on July 4th which suggests they have identified the man they want, but something at the moment is stopping them making that appointment.

The other factors presumably being an ability to do a nodding dog impression to Les Reed.
Why would you take notice of a limited track record when they can do such an impressive PowerPoint presentation.

Absolute horsesh*t.

Really Carroll? What source?

Telegraph report that it NOTHING to do with available money but rather that, after research, they found that MP couldn't provide the "tracksuit" training ground manager they wanted. And Saints walked away not MP.

Who to believe heh? Really getting fed up of negative views on this. Saints are doing a hell of a lot of work finding the right man and all people can do is moan.

Being a saints fan has always been a roller coaster ride but from last appointments I do hold faith in the board,everyone needs to remember what is what like when the business man and not football minded chairman Lowe was in charge

Got to admit I'm behind the board rather than a poll vote for the next manager by a group of impatient fans. As long as we have a man in place by the time England are out of the Euros the attention is off us so we can do a proper job.

​Tottenham Hotspur have confirmed the signing of Kenyan international midfielder Victor Wanyama from Southampton for a fee believed to be in the region of £11m.

He is the first new arrival of the summer following a title challenge in 2015/16 and has signed a five-year contract that will keep him at Spurs until 2021.
