Mark Hughes sacked as Southampton manager

Legit.ng recalls that Manchester United survived Southampton's scare at Saint Mary's Stadium after coming from two goals down to clinch valuable point in Saturday's Premier League clash. It is hard to see him remaining in the Premier League.

The former goalkeeper will face the media on Monday afternoon, just hours after the club announced Hughes' exit. Embarrassing! Absolutely embarrassing that our club won't take action because they don't want to pay Mourinho's severance pay.#MUFC (@UnitedStandMUFC)If Southampton could sack Mark Hughes for the draw.

Hughes, appointed in March, managed to keep his former club up last season and was rewarded with a three-year deal in the summer along with coaches Mark Bowen and Eddie Niedzwiecki.

One fan said: "This is really the flawless clip to show how frustrating Pogba can be", while another mentioned: "First 2 seconds unbelievable, last 2 seconds awful".

Manchester United recovered from two goals down to earn a 2-2 draw at Southampton, although one point from a trip to the Premier League strugglers represents another frustrating outing for Jose Mourinho and his side.

"When you see them play, it's catastrophic, it's very bad, when we all remember Manchester with Roy Keane, Beckham - all the great players, they played offensive football".

The former Sunderland shot-stopper was brilliant for his country England at the World Cup in Russian Federation earlier this year, and won many admirers owing to his performance. "Probably not", he said (via BBC Sport).

Saints will have had four permanent managers in less than 18 months once Hughes' long-term replacement is in their post.

Mourinho added: "We did so well in the last 15, 20 minutes of the first half, we chose to connect to the attacking players by transporting the ball, the right choice of pass, accelerating the game, but in the second half we went back to that dynamic".
