London:

Southampton have sacked manager Nigel Adkins and replaced him with former Espanyol boss Mauricio Pochettino, the Premier League club announced on Friday.

The Saints are 15th in English football's top flight, three points above the relegation zone, after coming back from 2-0 down in a 2-2 draw away to European champions Chelsea on Wednesday.

But that was not enough to prevent south coast club Southampton sacking Adkins and replacing him with 40-year-old Argentinian Pochettino, who will take charge of training ahead of Monday's match at home to Everton.
