Wotte to lose out to British boss?

Wotte to lose out to British boss?

Mark Wotte could be replaced by a British manager if the Pinnacle Group led by Matthew Le Tissier take over Southampton FC.

The consortium's 21 day exclusivity deal expires on Friday, and administrator Mark Fry has just two days to secure a deal with the Pinnacle group.

If a deal is met, Mark Wotte could be axed as Southampton manager, as Le Tissier along with the group have declared their interest in having a British boss to steer the club back to the Premiership.

Saints legend Le Tissier has met with the Dutchman to discuss the future of Southampton, and Wotte's involvement next season has not been secured.

I am a fan of Wotte, and would be upset to see the Dutchman go. I have heard that the players don't get on with him, so this could be a factor of our failure. It's all down to who they bring in. I'd like to see a Paul Jewell come to St. Mary's and get us back to where we belong.

Abesaint, as far as I am aware MW is very well liked by all the players, especially the youngsters. He is an 'above board' coach who has the club's interests at heart. I do believe that we do need fresh blood (Boothroyd or Tisdale imo) but think that MW still has a part to play.

Hopefully this can be the making of SFC. Things always have to get worse before they get better and maybe in a few years we can be back in the PL!
