Ronald Koeman has surprised many by leaving Southampton to replace Roberto Martinez at Everton, and now the search for a new manager at Saints is on.
In a statement the club said: “Southampton Football Club can today confirm it has accepted the resignation of First Team Manager Ronald Koeman…Our focus now is to build on our long-term plan, and work with a new management team who share both the club’s and our supporters’ values and ambitions.”
Southampton are the model of a well run top flight club, seven seasons of successive improvement in league stature is an enticing record to continue for any manager, but Saints will need to yet again pull a superb appointment out of the bag to keep it going.
Undoubtedly now the rumour mill will get into gear and a number of managers will be linked with the job. Some big names such as David Moyes have already been mentioned in line with the vacancy at Southampton, but our landlord here in the Transfer Tavern has selected FIVE managers who would be perfect for the role…
