Claude Puel fired by Southampton

Southampton have fired coach Claude Puel after only one season.

Even after the club finished eighth in the Premier league, Puel’s future at the club was never clear. He replaced Ronald Koeman who left for Everton last season. Southampton’s director of football Les Reed was considering potential replacements after concluding his end-of-season review for chairman Ralph Krueger.

Puel, joined the club from Nice last season and won only 12 of the 38 premier league matches. A club statement released yesterday stated “Southampton can today confirm that it has terminated the contract of Claude Puel with immediate effect.”
