Southampton close in on Mark Hughes as new boss

Former Stoke City boss Mark Hughes remains the firm favorite to takeover from Mauricio Pellegrino at Southampton, with the club expected to hire the Welshman in the coming days.

The Club hope to have a new Manager in place before facing Wigan on Sunday for a place in the semi final of the English FA Cup.

Hughes was sacked by Stoke in January after four and a half years, having previously managed Wales, Blackburn, Manchester City, Fulham and QPR.

The BBC report that the Saints are now in talks with Hughes over becoming the club's next manager, who will be tasked with saving the Saints from their precarious position in the Premier League table.

Earlier, NAIJ.com had reported how Premier League club Southampton sacked their manager Mauricio Pellegrino with just eight games to the end of the ongoing EPL season in England.

Of this season's contrasting fortunes, Pellegrino said: "We have been living a hard season for many reasons".

I have to say thanks to Ralph, to the board, to Les and Ross, all my technical staff and all the Southampton employees.

The Premier League club Southampton are searching for a new coach and the Croatian Slaven Bilic is on their radar.

However, last night the Southampton board finally made a stand, sacking the man who has won just five of his 30 league games in charge.

Hughes played for Saints between 1998 and 2000 and they believe that he has the experience to steer the club away from the relegation zone.
