‘Superstar’ coaches are on the rise to save ‘last-place’ Southampton from the relegation zone.
On the 14th (Korean time), British media ’90min’ said, “It is known that Frank Lampard and Steven Gerrard, who were sacked from Everton and Aston Villa at the beginning of this season, are interested in the vacant Southampton manager position. Soccer DC United manager Wayne Rooney is also seeking the role. Agents have been contacted by Southampton,” the report said.
Southampton recorded 4 wins, 3 draws and 15 losses (15 points) as of this day, and is in last place in the English Premier League in the 2022-2023 season. Southampton, which needs a reversal of the atmosphere, officially announced on the club website on the 12th, “We have parted ways with coach Nathan Jones, who was the first team manager.” 안전놀이터
Following the sacking of manager Jones, first team coaches Chris Cohen and Alan Siheon also left the team. For this reason, Southampton is scheduled to direct the 24th round of the Premier League away match against Chelsea on the 19th, with coach Ruben Selles as acting coach for the time being.
In this situation, ‘star’ coaches are on the way as candidates for the next Southampton command tower. However, Alex Crook of the British media ‘Torque Sport’ explained, “Does Rooney have enough leadership experience to pitch in the relegation fight? Everton saw that it was not the case even as a club legend.”
“Then there’s Lampard and Gerrard, and I think they’re going to be passionate. But these are managers who have been sacked by teams near Southampton.”
In addition to the ‘star’ manager, Southampton are struggling to nominate former Aston Villa and Brentford manager Dean Smith, former River Plate manager Marcelo Gallardo and former Bayer Leverkusen manager Gerardo Seoane.
