Southampton fans react as Mauricio Pellegrino’s Leganes beat Barcelona

Former Southampton manager Mauricio Pellegrino led his Leganes team to a famous 2-1 victory against Barcelona in La Liga on Wednesday night, and Saints fans were quick to react on Twitter.

The Argentine boss was sacked by the south coast outfit in March of this year following a dreadful spell in charge that left the club in a relegation battle, with Mark Hughes coming in and eventually rescuing them from the drop.

Despite his disappointing spell at St Mary’s, Pellegrino was employed by the Spanish top-flight minnows in the summer and the result against the leaders was a stunning one given they had only taken one point from five league matches previously, which meant they came into the clash at the foot of the standings.

Southampton supporters, who may be about to see Les Reed do something he should have done in 2016, took to social media to give their thoughts on the stunning result, and while one said “we miss you”, another simply labelled it as “unbelievable”.
