Southampton lost a ‘great manager’, admits Rodriguez

Southampton striker Jay Rodriguez has admitted that the departure of manager Mauricio Pochettino to Tottenham is a major blow to the club, the Guardian has reported.

Rodriguez was the top scorer as Pochettino led the Saints to an impressive eighth place last season, as well as their highest ever number of points in a Premier League season. The Argentine’s 16-month time in charge also saw a number of Saints players - including Rodriguez - become England internationals.


On Pochettino’s decision to leave, the former Burnley star said: “Mauricio is a great manager and a great guy and was well respected by the lads. He worked us really hard and we got the good results and finished eighth which we were happy with. Football moves on though so it’s one of those things.”


Since Pochettino moved on, Rickie Lambert has left for Liverpool while a number of other key players have been heavily linked with moves elsewhere over the summer. “You don’t want to see players going and the team being taken apart,” added Rodriguez. ‘You can sometimes never stop it, it is one of those things so I’m trying not to think about it and hopefully we will have everyone at pre-season.”
