European Cup winner the favourite for vacant Southampton job

Our Southampton fans here in the Transfer Tavern are hoping that their side is going to get a new manager in quickly after the departure of Claude Puel.

Indeed, many had felt that Puel was going to go over this off-season and that duly came to pass as the Frenchman was let go earlier this week.

Now, then, the Saints need to look for a new manager and, naturally, plenty of names are being linked to what is one of the more attractive jobs in the Premier League.

Certainly, the potential is there for the club to regularly play European football and so whoever comes in will be tasked with delivering just that.

And, according to Sky Bet via Sky Sports, it’s Dutch legend Frank de Boer who is being linked with the job at the moment as the favourite.

De Boer, of course, won the European Cup with Ajax as player and so certainly knows what it takes to play at the highest level with the idea that he will be able to translate that onto his players.

Thoughts, Southampton fans? Let us know below!
