Southampton have dismissed manager Nathan Jones after winning only one of eight Premier League games in charge of the club.
The south coast club are bottom of the Premier League and under threat of relegation. Jones replaced Ralph Hassenhuttl to help pull the club out of the danger zone.
However, his team have picked up only three points since he joined them – the lowest tally of any team in that period.
Southampton sacked the 49-year-old following a 2-1 loss to 10-man Wolverhampton Wanderers yesterday.
The Saints took the lead and were handed a gift when Mario Lemina was sent off, but they were unable to hold on.
A club statement read: “Southampton Football Club can confirm it has parted company with men’s first team manager Nathan Jones.
“First team coaches Chris Cohen and Alan Sheehan have also left the club.
“First team lead Coach Ruben Selles will take charge of training and prepare the team ahead of next weekend’s game against Chelsea.”
Jones has left his position after three months and 14 games in charge in all competitions.
The former Luton Town boss led his side to the semi-final of the Carabao Cup before Newcastle United eliminated them.
The Wolves defeat was the final straw for the club after they lost to a team that played with a man down for over an hour.
Carlos Alcaraz had opened the scoring on the South Coast before Lemina received a red card for an undecipherable offence.
However, Jan Bednarek scored an own goal after 72 minutes before debutant Joao Gomes sealed the game with three minutes to go.
The Brazilian matched his tally from his 122 appearances for Flamengo in his first appearance.
Southampton will now look to hire their third manager of the season. Unemployed former England internationals Frank Lampard and Steven Gerrard are the front-runners.
