Mauricio Pochettino replaces Nigel Adkins at Southampton

Southampton have sacked manager Nigel Adkins and replaced him with former Espanyol boss Mauricio Pochettino.

The Saints are 15th in the Barclays Premier League after coming back from 2-0 down to claim a draw with European champions Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday.

But that was not enough to save Adkins from the axe, with 40-year-old Argentinian Pochettino taking charge of training on Saturday ahead of Monday's home game with Everton.
