Everton fans beg Southampton to take Allardyce after Pellegrino sacking

Hovering just one spot above the relegation zone Southampton are in danger of losing the top-flight status they acquired six seasons ago.

The ex-Watford boss was immediately made the stand-out favourite to take over at St.Mary's stadium after Pellegrino was relieved of his managerial duties on Monday, but reports have since suggested otherwise.

Saturday's 3-0 defeat by Newcastle United had left them a place and a point above the relegation zone and sealed the Argentine's fate.

Pellegrino, only appointed in the summer, paid the price for Southampton's alarming recent form.

"The club will look to appoint a new management team as soon as possible", the club said in a brief statement, "with the search for a replacement already underway".

Simon Patmore wins Australia's first gold at Winter Paralympics
This takes New Zealand to two medals overall, following Corey Peters' bronze on Saturday in the Men's Downhill Sitting event. Patmore won bronze in the 200m T46 in London and 100m gold at the Commonwealth Games in the same class eight years ago.

Hughes played more than 50 times for Southampton in the late 1990s and his appointment would end a run of four non-British managers after Mauricio Pochettino, Ronald Koeman, Puel and Pellegrino.

He has also managed Wales, Manchester City, Blackburn Rovers Fulham and Queens Park Rangers - and is behind only Arsène Wenger, Sir Alex Ferguson, Harry Redknapp, David Moyes and Sam Allardye on the list of most Premier League games.

Southampton have won only once in their last 17 EPL outings, though the team have qualified for the quarter-finals of the FA Cup. The Frenchman had guided the Saints to the league cup final (their first appearance in a final for 14 years) and eighth place in the Premier League, not a bad balance sheet after one season in charge.

"I think they may have got a little but too complacent and thought they are too good to be in this position go down", the Saints legend added.
