Nigel Adkins' backroom team will follow him out of Southampton.

His replacement, Mauricio Pochettino, met senior Saints players Kelvin Davis, Adam Lallana and Jose Fonte before facing the media.

He will bring an entire backroom team with him to St Mary's after assistant manager Andy Crosby, long-serving coach Dean Wilkins and goalkeeper coach Jim Stannard were axed alongside Adkins.
