Southampton fans divided on whether Bilic should potentially replace Pellegrino

West Ham United announced on their official website on Monday that they had relieved manager Slaven Bilic of his duties, and Southampton fans are divided as to whether they would take him to replace the under-fire Mauricio Pellegrino.

Bilic was sacked following the Irons’ 4-1 defeat against Liverpool at the London Stadium on Saturday, with other results over the weekend taking them into the relegation zone heading into the international break.

However, Saints boss Pellegrino is also coming under increased scrutiny after the 1-0 loss against Burnley at St Mary’s on Saturday, with he and his team booed off at the full-time whistle following another game without a goal.

Southampton supporters were quick to react to Bilic’s availability via social media, and they were divided with their opinions.

While one said he would prefer to get someone ‘like Garry Monk’, another said “I’d take Bilic”.
