With Ronald Koeman having agreed to join Everton on Tuesday, Southampton must once again prepare for a turbulent summer of ins and outs at St. Mary’s.
The shock deal left many Saints flummoxed as to why their beloved manager would move to the Toffees, who finished 11th last season, when on the South Coast the Dutchman had secured a place in the Europa League group stage.
Still the deal is done and now Saints’ fans must take stock and asses what Koeman’s departure means for their club.
It will be a pivotal summer at St. Mary’s Stadium, who will again be tested to reproduce the successful overhauls of the past two years after losing key figures at the club.
Perhaps they’ll be able to pull off yet another rise from the ashes, certainly an outcome you’d be foolish not to consider after the last few years.
Perhaps they won’t.
Still, here’s a look at 2 pros and 2 cons for the Saints.
