Poortvliet Resigns

Poortvliet Resigns

Jan Poortvliet has stepped down as Southampton manager following the sides` poor home form this season.

The Saints have only won once at St. Mary's this season, a 2-0 victory against Norwich way back in September.

Poortvliet, 53, took over from Nigel Pearson at beginning of the season, and the Dutchman has failed to settle in on the south coast.

Following last Saturday's 2-1 defeat at home to Doncaster Rovers, the Saints are stranded in 23rd place and face a crucial away game at Norwich on Tuesday night.

Academy director Mark Wotte has taken the post, and will be in charge of the match at Norwich.

I could see this happening. Lets just hope that Wotte can lift the boys for a massive game at Norwich.

Yeah, I'm not too sure about the appointment of Mark Wotte. But the club needed a change, and hopefully this could be the right change. We have a serious lack of funds so I'm guessing all we can afford is Wotte. Beggers can't be choosers...
