Marco Silva 3/1 for Southampton; Pellegrino Prem fav to exit next

| 23.01.2018

Times are tough for Southampton, with the South Coast club having won just one of their last 15 Premier League games. And boss Mauricio Pellegrino is odds-on to be the next Prem manager to exit his post.

The former Alaves boss is just 4/6 to be the next Prem departure, with pressure piling on the man who joined Saints in June 2017.

And despite the Argentine still clinging onto the job at St Mary’s, a favourite has already emerged to replace him – in the form of 3/1 shot Marco Silva.

Silva’s stint as Watford boss ended abruptly last weekend, but it seems he could be back at the reins of a top-flight club very soon.

Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “Silva’s sudden availability may lead to Southampton chiefs sacking Pellegrino sooner than we thought, with the latest odds suggesting the former Watford and Hull boss could soon be set for a spell with the Saints.”

Southampton host Brighton & Hove Albion on Wednesday night.

If they fail to come good on odds of 7/10 for victory, it could well be the final straw for Pellegrino, and trigger a quick return to the Prem for Silva.
