A Sunday, Jan. 21, 2018 file photo showing Southampton manager Mauricio Pellegrino applauding during the English Premier League football match between Southampton and Tottenham Hotspur at the St Mary's Stadium in Southampton, England. The club also sacked two of Pellegrino's assistants.

Assistant coaches Carlos Compagnucci and Xavier Tamarit have also left the club.

And Southampton have now chose to act with the team sitting 17th, just one point above the drop zone with eight games to go.

Southampton take on Wigan in the FA Cup quarter-finals this Sunday and due to the upcoming worldwide break, they don't have another Premier League match until March 31 when they travel to London to face West Ham United.

Southampton, who sit just a point above the bottom three, face a challenging run-in, with only three home matches remaining, including the visits of Chelsea and Manchester City, the latter on the final day of the season.

Welshman Mark Hughes was firming as the bookmakers' favourite to replace Mauricio Pellegrino as Southampton manager on Tuesday after the Argentine was sacked with the Premier League club hovering a point and a place above the relegation zone.

Manchester City could seal Premier League title against United after Silva brilliance
Manchester City broke the deadlock after just 10 minutes at the bet365 Stadium thanks to Silva's neat side-footed finish.

Pellegrino took over from Claude Puel in June and was charged with building upon last season's eighth-place finish while freeing the players from the Frenchman's conservative approach.

The club said in a statement they want to "appoint a new management team as soon as possible, with the search for a replacement already under way".

Silva has been linked with Portguese giants Benfica for next season, but it remains to be seen if he could turn down the chance to return to the Premier League.

Following Saturday's defeat, Pellegrino admitted that he "observed some players who gave up".

For this reason, I would like to say sorry to our fans because we couldn't represent our club properly.
