Southampton handed negative news as manager search begins

Our Southampton fans here in the Transfer Tavern are still discussing the fact the Claude Puel has left the club after being dismissed yesterday evening.

The Frenchman had only been at the club a campaign but it appears as though it wasn’t a good enough one for the Saints’ hierarchy who clearly wanted more.

Indeed, despite a run to the EFL Cup final and a spell in Europe, the Saints did not improve on their league position last time out but it seems to be more that the way they played that ended up costing Puel his job.

Who comes in, then, remains to be seen but it appears as though Thomas Tuchel will not be in the running for the job – as per Rob Dorsett on Twitter:

Southampton fans, then, will have to wait and see as to who comes in to replace Puel.

Thoughts, Saints fans? Let us know below!
