- Match Analysis
Southampton have sacked Les Reed from his position as the club’s vice-chairman to put an end to their poor run of results. Southampton have not won a single match in the last two months and are currently 16th in the Premier League. There are also reports that Mark Hughes will be sacked if Southampton lose Saturday’s match against Watford.
Southampton chairman Ralph Krueger said, “His time at the club will be remembered for the fine work he did in overseeing our progress through the divisions and establishing the club in the Premier League. The process of recruiting the right individual to head up our football operations is underway, and is a decision that needs to be given the necessary time and attention that reflects what an important position it is within our club.”
Thanks to Krueger, Southampton have produced some remarkable talents like Luke Shaw, Alex Oxlaide-Chamberlain and Calum Chambers. Reed previously managed Charlton Athletic and was also the technical director of the FA.
