Southampton fans launch campaign for club to sack Mauricio Pellegrino

At a pre-arranged time of between 6-7pm on Monday evening, Southampton fans took to Twitter in their masses to say that they want the club to sack Mauricio Pellegrino, using #PellegrinoMustGo to get their message across.

Saturday’s 3-0 defeat against Liverpool at Anfield was their fifth defeat in 12 Premier League games this season under the Argentine, with the team scoring just nine goals during that period.

While they have been dull to watch and were fortunate to take all three points in the wins against West Ham United and West Bromwich Albion this term, the loss against Jurgen Klopp’s men showed a real naivety from a defensive point of view.

Southampton supporters created a social media campaign to put across their thoughts on the 43-year-old on Monday, and while one simply said “we’ve had enough”, another said “he lied to us” after saying the team would play attacking football when he was appointed.
