Southampton posted a 60-second round-up video on their official Twitter account on Thursday of manager Mauricio Pellegrino’s pre-match press conference for the crucial relegation six-pointer against Newcastle United at St James’ Park on Saturday, and Saints fans were quick to react.

Within the video the 46-year-old talked about how the south coast outfit have improved in 2018 having suffered only two defeats in their last nine matches, while he also talked about the possibility of playing with two strikers from the start against the Magpies.
Southampton’s goalless draw against fellow strugglers Stoke City at St Mary’s last weekend has ultimately meant that they must bring three points back from Tyneside if they are to have a good chance of beating the drop,
Southampton supporters took to social media to give their thoughts on the latest quotes from the man that they want to be sacked, and while one said they “can’t take anymore of this nonsense”, another described his words as “gibberish nonsensical rubbish”.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
