Ronald Koeman: Set to be named manager at Southampton

Koeman, who left Feyenoord at the end of last season after finishing second in the Eredivisie, is expected to succeed Mauricio Pochettino who departed St Mary’s to take over as Tottenham boss earlier this month.

Southampton executive director Les Reed revealed this week they were close to announcing a high-calibre managerial appointment and reports suggest the former Netherlands international is their main target.

Koeman, who has managed in Holland, Portugal and Spain, will have to shut the exit door at Southampton with Adam Lallana, Luke Shaw and Dejan Lovren all linked with moves away.

Hull City boss Steve Bruce along with former Swansea City manager Michael Laudrup, ex-Celtic boss Neill Lennon and former Tottenham manager Tim Sherwood have all been linked with the Saints post.

F365's Top Ten Defenders Of The Season

P

robably the first list I've come across in a long time where I agree with a large majority of what was written. Can't agree with everything though, Zaba has had an awful season by his standards, I'd put Monreal (a player who I've never rated) up there, gotta give credit where it's due, he's really stepped up his game.
