Southampton sack manager Nathan Jones
Southampton have confirmed that manager Nathan Jones has been sacked.
The Saints currently sit bottom of the Premier League table with just 15 points from 22 games.
They were most recently beaten 2-1 at home by ten-man Wolves on Saturday afternoon despite having led 1-0.
After replacing Ralph Hasenhuttl earlier this season, Jones failed to turn Southampton’s fortunes around and has now paid the price, with the club confirming on Sunday morning that he has departed the club.
In a statement, Southampton said: “Southampton Football Club can confirm it has parted company with Men’s First Team Manager Nathan Jones.
“First Team Coaches Chris Cohen and Alan Sheehan have also left the club.
“First Team Lead Coach Ruben Selles will take charge of training and prepare the team ahead of next weekend’s game against Chelsea.”
Jones lost nine of his 14 games in charge of Southampton, while he only oversaw one Premier League win – a 2-1 victory at Frank Lampard’s Everton.
His direct style of football and bizarre press conferences saw him quickly become an unpopular figure among Saints fans following his November arrival from Luton Town.
Jones has become just the eighth manager in Premier League history to lose his job less than 100 days into his tenure.

Arsenal pre-season 2023/24: Fixtures and schedule
Having reached new heights in the Premier League in 2022/23, Arsenal will soon be beginning their preparations for the new campaign with a pre-season tour to get ready for 2023/24.
Preparations for last season took place in Germany for Arsenal but with the Covid-19 pandemic a bit more of a distant memory for many, it is expected that more teams will be heading further afield again to either the United States of America or Asia.
Arsenal are yet to announce a full training camp location for their pre-season but they do have one fixture already confirmed which drops a big clue.
The Gunners are going to be coming up against an MLS All-Star team in Washington D.C. which will be coached by Manchester United and England legend Wayne Rooney. That takes place on July 19 and it is hard to imagine that Arsenal will only play one game in America.
A semi-regular fixture of Arsenal’s pre-seasons in recent years has been the Emirates Cup, but there has not been any word on whether an edition of that will be taking place or not this summer. If there is, then Arsenal could be splitting their time between America and London.
All times BST.
As is the case for almost every big club in football now, all of Arsenal’s pre-season friendlies are expected to be televised live on Arsenal.com and their official app with a subscription.
