Southampton hire Mauricio Pellegrino as new manager

Steve Nicol believes Mauricio Pellegrino's open, attack-minded style of football will suit Southampton.

Mauricio Pellegrino has been appointed as the new Southampton manager on a three-year deal.

He replaces Claude Puel, who was sacked last week after frustrations behind the scenes and in the stands, despite guiding Saints to eighth in the Premier League and the League Cup final in his first season.

Southampton have acted quickly to name his successor, with former Alaves boss Pellegrino penning a contract at St Mary's less than a month after stepping down as boss of Alaves.

Southampton close in on Mauricio Pellegrino appointment - sources

With Claude Puel sacked from Southampton, Craig Burley assesses the potential replacement for Saints manager.
Following Claude Puel's sacking by Southampton, Shaka Hislop explains the best plan of action next for the Saints.
Amid Southampton's request to investigate Liverpool over an alleged illegal approach to Virgil van Dijk, Steve Nicol hits back at Saints and says they have no reason to complain.

Southampton will speak with former Alaves coach Mauricio Pellegrino imminently and may appoint him as the club's new manager by the end of this week, sources close to the club have told ESPN FC.

Saints are looking for a new head coach after sacking Claude Puel earlier this month, and Pellegrino viewed as a leading contender as he ticks many of the boxes laid out by the club as they look to appoint a candidate who will fill the role for an extended period.

Theo Hernandez AWOL on holiday rather than with France under-21 team

Theo Hernandez spent the season on loan at Alaves.

Atletico Madrid's Theo Hernandez will be summoned to the French Football Federation's (FFF) HQ in Paris to explain why he appears to have gone on holiday rather than link up with his country's under-21 team. 

Newly appointed U21 coach Sylvain Ripoll named Theo, 19, in his 22-man squad for this month's friendlies with Albania and Cameroon, but the left-back, who is reportedly set to move to Real Madrid in a €24 million move, did not show up at the team's training base outside Paris on...

Mauricio Pellegrino steps aside as Alaves boss after one year in the job

Mauricio Pellegrino took charge of Alaves last summer.

Mauricio Pellegrino has stepped down as coach of Copa del Rey runners-up Alaves.

The former Argentina defender took charge of newly promoted Alaves on a one-year deal last summer, replacing Jose Bordalas, who had led the Basque club to the Segunda Division title.

Pellegrino ensured Alaves had a memorable first season back in La Liga, leading them to a ninth-placed finish -- beating Barcelona, Valencia and Villarreal along the way -- as well as to the Copa del Rey final, where they lost 3-1 to Barca...

Little Alaves upstage Barcelona despite losing Copa del Rey final

After capturing their third straight Copa del Rey, Steve Nicol doesn't think Barca will be pleased with their season overall.

MADRID -- The thousands of Alaves fans -- representing some significant percentage of Vitoria, their little northern town -- began filling the hot streets of Madrid well before noon. For hours, it seemed as though their alleged rivals from Barcelona wouldn't even deign to join them. The conclusion of their meeting in the Copa del Rey was that foregone.

If there is anything more universal than football, it's the desire to see its biggest underdogs succeed. So it was impossible to wade through those...
