Southampton have moved to rectify their poor form by sacking current manager Mark Hughes.

The Saints are on a horrific run in the top flight having only won one of their opening 14 games and are now sitting in 18th position in the Premier League with only nine points.

Following their 2-2 draw with Manchester United at the weekend, the club announced that they had parted ways with Hughes after only eight months in charge at St Mary’s. In 22 Premier League matches with Southampton, the former Manchester City, Queens Park Rangers and Stoke City boss only won three games.

He managed to lead them to survival in the Premier League last season but he has not quite had the same impact this season and as a result, the Saints begin their search for their fifth manager in the last five years.

Former RB Leipzig man Ralph Hasenhuttl is the odds-on favourite to be named as the next man in charge of the club and can be backed at 1/3 with BetVictor. Meanwhile, former Watford boss Quique Sanchez Flores is available at 10/1 with Paddy Power.

Southampton are back in action on Wednesday evening as they face a tough challenge against Tottenham Hotspur at Wembley Stadium.
