Mark Hughes, manager of Southampton

Southampton unsurprisingly decided to sack Mark Hughes on Monday morning. Take a look at the odds for the next Saints boss here with ex-Watford man Quique Sanchez Flores the early frontrunner.

It's been a tough start to the season for Southampton. After just about managing to stave off relegation last year thanks to some key victories in the final stages of the campaign, they were unable to take any momentum into the new campaign and after 14 matches they find themselves in the drop zone after allowing a two goal lead to slip in this weekend's draw with Manchester United.

As a result, Mark Hughes was removed from his position on Monday morning and now the club find themselves looking to appoint a new manager, although it's difficult to see which direction they will take as the appointment of the Welsh boss seemed to be a move away from their usual philosophy.

The early odds-on favourites for the hotseat is Spanish boss Quique Sanchez Flores. The ex-Spain international took over at Watford back in 2015 but remained in Hertfordshire for just one season on the Hornets' return to the Premier League and since then he has enjoyed a two year spell in charge of La Liga outfit Espanyol.

Some of the usual suspects find themselves in the running for the job. Both David Moyes and Sam Allardyce have been utilised in looking to guide teams away from relegation in the last few years although it could be slightly too early in the season for alarm bells to be ringing so loud so perhaps the Saints will look to the continent for their next boss as they did in hiring managers like Mauricio Pellegrino, Ronald Koeman and Mauricio Pochettino.

Shakhtar Donetsk boss Paolo Foncesca has been linked with a move to the Premier League for some time and is currently second in the running in the Paddy Power odds at 10/1 whilst former Ajax and Borussia Dortmund Peter Bosz is available at around 16/1 also.
