Southampton, the lowest team in the English Premier League (EPL), sacked coach Nathan Jones (49, England). It is already the second time this season that Southampton, which is on the verge of relegation, has sacked its manager, after Ralf Hasenhüttl (56, Austria).
The Southampton club announced on the 12th (Korean time) that it had parted ways with manager Jones through the club’s official website. Hard in nature. Coaches Chris Cohen and Alan Sihan are also leaving the team with Jones. For the time being, coach Ruben Selles takes the helm.
It was predictable hard. After taking over as coach Jones, Southampton recorded 1 win and 7 losses in the league. The only victory against Everton, which was competing for relegation, was the only one, but all other matches were lost. 슬롯사이트
In particular, the reverse defeat to Wolverhampton at home on the 12th became a fatal blow. Southampton had a numerical advantage by sending off the opponent after the opening goal, but suffered a come-from-behind defeat by conceding two goals in the second half. Jones made the absurd claim that “the opponent’s sending off was rather a loss to Southampton.”
In the end, Southampton, which was at the bottom of the league and in danger of relegation to the second division next season, pulled out its second hard card this season. Previously, Southampton sacked coach Ralph Hasenhuttl, who had led the team for four years, in November of last year when the team fell to 18th. In order to survive in the EPL this season, he made the ‘decision’ of replacing the second coach only this season.
Southampton is the only EPL club this season to have fired its manager twice during the season. Locally, former River Plate manager Marcelo Gallardo, former Aston Villa manager Steven Gerrard, and former Everton manager Rafa Benitez are being mentioned as candidates for the next managerial tower.
Southampton is at the bottom of the league with 4 wins, 3 draws and 15 losses (15 points). The gap with 17th place Leeds United, which is the remaining Maginot Line, is 4 points. If they are relegated this season, they will fall to the stage of the English Championship (Part 2) for the first time in 12 years since the 2011-2012 season.
