Pochettino facing Southampton locker room revolt
New Southampton boss Mauricio Pochettino faces a locker room revolt over the sacking of Nigel Adkins.
The Daily Mail says a number of the first-team squad were furious with Adkins's dismissal and have expressed concerns about the appointment of Pochettino.
Adkins, 47, was summoned to meet Saints executive chairman Nicola Cortese yesterday morning and dismissed.
The players are concerned about Pochettino speaking only minimal English, and there are also worries about his knowledge of the Premier League.
