Southampton next manager odds: The favourites to replace sacked boss Mauricio Pellegrino

Guido Carrillo of Southampton battles for possesion with Kurt Zouma of Stoke City during the Premier League match between Southampton and Stoke City at St Mary's Stadium

The ex-Watford boss was immediately made the stand-out favourite to take over at St.Mary's stadium after Pellegrino was relieved of his managerial duties on Monday, but reports have since suggested otherwise.

The final straw for the Saints board was the spineless 3-0 defeat at Newcastle United on Saturday when Pellegrino accused some of his players of giving up.

Silva impressed many with his ultimately fruitless attempts to guide Hull City to Premier League safety previous year and he made a good start at Watford this season until an approach from Everton soured his relations with the club.

The former England boss is THE anti relegation specialist, becoming the firefighter to extinguish all relegation threatened Premier League blazes, having never been previously relegated in his career.

In a change from recent appointments, and with eight games remaining to ensure they are not relegated, Southampton are working to a different criteria than in the recent appointments of Mauricio Pochettino, Ronald Koeman, Claude Puel and Manuel Pellegrino.

Hughes has been earmarked as a manager who could have an immediate impact, but who could also implement a longer-term philosophy which would enable more young players to come through the ranks.

― Reuters picLONDON, March 13 ― Southampton's refusal to sell defender Virgil van Dijk in the close season had disrupted their Premier League campaign which ultimately led to manager Mauricio Pellegrino being sacked, former club captain Matt Le Tissier has said.

Southampton has 29 goals in 30 games, winning only five of them.
