Pochettino pays tribute to Adkins as Southampton blank former manager

Southampton attempted to write former manager Nigel Adkins out of their history books yesterday.

Saints started life without Adkins by refusing to mention their old boss in their 75-page programme.

But even if the club have quickly forgot about Adkins' hardwork, his successor Mauricio Pochettino has not.

He said: "I have the maximum respect for the previous manager.

"It's never nice to take over from another manager who's been let go, but that's how it's been."
