Manager leaves St Mary's with team in 17th after one win in 17 Premier League matches

Southampton have parted company with manager Mauricio Pellegrino.

The Argentinian's final match in charge was the 3-0 defeat at Newcastle United on Saturday, a result that left the club fourth from bottom and a point above the relegation zone.

Pellegrino, 46, moved to the south coast last summer but, after a promising start, Southampton had claimed just one win in their last 17 Premier League matches.

Assistant manager Carlos Compagnucci and assistant first-team coach Xavier Tamarit have also left the club.

Southampton say they will look to appoint a new management team "as soon as possible", with the search for a replacement already under way.

The team are next in Premier League action at West Ham United on 31 March.
