Gross rejected Southampton job

Christian Gross turned down the job at Southampton, it has been revealed.

The Daily Mail says former Tottenham manager Gross had agreed to replace Nigel Adkins at St Mary’s.

But a last-minute change of heart from the Swiss boss secured a stay of execution, and Southampton’s form picked up.

But Adkins was sacked yesterday and quickly replaced by Mauricio Pochettino.
