Southampton

Pellegrino confident of Southampton turnaround

9th November 2017, 12:09 by Chris Rivers

Southampton boss Mauricio Pellegrino admits results haven't been good enough this season but says his team are on the right path.

The Spaniard has found the going tough during the early days of his Saints' career having taken charge in the summer, last Saturday's home defeat to Burnley leaving them four points outside the relegation zone.

Goals have again been an issue for the south coast outfit, scoring just nine in 11 matches so far, while they have taken five points from their last six Premier League matches.

Pellegrino admits he is starting to feel the pressure of Southampton's poor run of results but remains confident results will start to turn around if they remain on their current path.

“I feel the responsibility because my job we’ve got a lot of people to be in charge of and I feel responsibility for my players,” Pellegrino told the Daily Echo.

“I am responsible in the way we are playing and the way we are training, our dynamics – the way we are performing.

“But we cannot control the results, it’s something that comes in the game. It’s football.

“I think our results have been irregular. When you think four or five games we deserved a little bit more."
