After One Season, Southampton Sack Claude Puel

Southampton have sacked their manager Claude Puel after one season. The Frenchman's future had been in doubt despite Saints finishing eighth in the Premier League and reaching the EFL Cup final, having succeeded Ronald Koeman last summer.

Saints director of football Les Reed was considering potential replacements after concluding his end-of-season review for chairman Ralph Krueger. Puel won only 12 of his 38 Premier League games last season and they finished only six points above 17th

A club statement on Wednesday read “Southampton can today confirm that it has terminated the contract of Claude Puel with immediate effect. Everyone at Southampton would like to express our thanks to Claude for his hard work and commitment this year. We wish Claude well for the future. The search for a new management team is underway. We are confident that we will find the right fit in line with the long-term vision of the club.”
