Southampton FC Next manager
Southampton football club was fighting to avoid relegation last season under Mauricio Pellegrino. They were very close to the relegation zone when he was sacked with only eight games left of the season. Mark Hughes was appointed on March 2018 in his position to help the club to avoid relegation. He successfully did his job last season and the club escaped relegation. Mark Hughes was offered a three-year contract to stay as the manager for the club. It was announced at the club's official website on 25th of May, 2018 that he has signed the contract.
But this season, Southampton has been having a tough time at the Premier League under their manager Mark Hughes. They have only secured 1 point from their first three fixtures. And the talks have already begun that Mark Hughes could get sacked from the club very soon.
If Mark Hughes gets sacked from Southampton FC, the managers that the Southampton board could replace him with are:
Current Team: Belgium
Roberto Martinez is the current head coach of Belgium National Team. He has done a good job at the FIFA World Cup 2018 after he led Belgium to the Semi-Finals of the tournament. But there is a possibility that he may want to come back to the Premier League to manage an English Club again. And Southampton could be that club. He has been with Belgium for over two years now, but with the right offer, he might be interested to manage the Saints.
Current Team: Republic Of Ireland
Martin O'Neill has been the head coach of Republic of Ireland since 2013. But he managed Sunderland and Aston Villa before that. He could be interested to come back to manage another Premier League side. He signed a two-year contract with the Republic of Ireland in January 2018 but it is possible that he decides to join Southampton as the manager.
Current Team: Northern Ireland
Michael O'Neill has been the head coach of Northern Ireland since 2011 and has done a good job. He was offered a contract to become the manager of Scotland in January 2018 but he refused the offer. But he could be interested to manage a Premier League side and Southampton could persuade him to take the job with the right offer.
Current Team: Celtic
Brendan Rodgers managed Watford, Reading, Swansea, and Liverpool before joining Celtic in 2016. He may want to come back to England and manager another Premier League side again. Southampton could be that club if they can persuade him to take the job.
Other managers who could be the next Southampton FC managers are:
