The Saints are now in 17th position and just one point above the drop zone.

If Southampton are prepared to wait until the summer in their search for a new long-term manager they would no doubt boost their chances of luring over a boss who is now in employment.

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.

Argentinian Pellegrino admitted some of his players gave up at St James's Park. Former England midfielder Jermaine Jenas called the performance "abysmal, shocking and borderline disgraceful" on Match of the Day.

Southampton last night sensationally sacked Mauricio Pellegrino after just nine months in charge.

In a statement released yesterday the club said that assistant manager Carlos Compagnucci and assistant first-team coach Xavier Tamarit had also parted company with the club.

Le Tissier, who played 443 league games for Southampton over a 17-year stint, added blame should not just lie at the door of the manager, and wants the next boss to bring fresh impetus to the under-performing players.

Despite having being sacked by the FA in September 2017, the former Bolton boss was back in work in December 2017 taking over at Crystal Palace, where he ultimately helped achieve a 14th place finish for the Eagles.

Southampton have lost a large number of players to their domestic rivals in the past few years and club chairman Ralph Krueger said earlier in the season that they were keen to end the perception that they were a selling club. The first time it looked like they had not played for him and they let him down.

"As far as the situation we are in at the moment, I think it makes sense to go with someone who has Premier League experience - who doesn't have to get to know a new set of players".
