It’s safe to say that this season has been anything but enjoyable for Southampton fans. While their crisis hasn’t been of Everton proportions, the Saints are struggling to find any consistency in the league and with just three wins from their first 11 games, the pressure is on new manager Mauricio Pellegrino already.
However, in an interview with the Southampton Echo, the Argentinian attempted to brush off any rumours of pressure on his shoulders;
“I feel the responsibility because my job we’ve got a lot of people to be in charge of and I feel responsibility for my players.
“I am responsible in the way we are playing and the way we are training, our dynamics – the way we are performing. But we cannot control the results, it’s something that comes in the game. It’s football. I think our results have been irregular. When you think four or five games we deserved a little bit more,
“But I think we’re on the right track.”
Following his comments to the local press, Saints fans were quick to respond and were not happy with their manager, particularly with his suggestion that the club are ‘on the right track’…
