Premier League club, Southampton, has sacked Mark Hughes after an awful start to season which has seen them grab just one win out of 14 games this season.
Assistant first team manager Mark Bowen and assistant first team coach Eddie Niedzwiecki have also left the club.
The dismissal comes after Southampton slipped into the relegation zone and dropped a two-goal lead against Manchester United on Saturday, in the game which ended 2 – 2.
In a statement, the Premier League strugglers announced: ‘We would like to express our thanks to Mark and his staff for all of their efforts during their time at St Mary’s,’ a statement read.
‘The search for a new manager to take the club forward is already underway.’
The club’s legend Kelvin Davis will take charge of Wednesday’s game against Tottenham.
