Pellegrino was expected to bring an attacking brand of front-foot football to St Mary’s but his team have struggled to convince and a conservative style of play has frustrated supporters. Saints said the search for a new manager was “already under way”.

Saints boss Mauricio Pellegrino was left frustrated after his side let a two-goal led slip against Watford at Vicarage Road this afternoon as reported by the Saints official website.

Saints took the lead in the first half thanks to two strikes from midfielder James Ward-Prowse had given his side a well-deserved lead at the break only for Watford to respond after the interval.

Saints once more failed to build on their advantage and instead held on for what they thought would be a massive three points on for Watford to level up late on.

The Saints boss spoke to the media after the draw and was left disappointed by the manner of the Watford leveller against his side.

““You want there to be justice for everyone, but today was an injustice for us,” said the boss.“I thought we played a really good first half. We showed we can be dangerous in open play on the counter-attack, and in defence for most of the game we played well.”

He spoke about his sides difficulty dealing with Watford’s frontline with the moves which they made.

““When you are winning 2-0, you expect your opponent to play very direct and it’s something that’s difficult to defend because maybe they are a little bit better than us in this aspect.“You have to put an extra body in front of the back four, which means you have one less body in front of them.“We did ok – most of the time we did well because I don’t remember many chances for Watford in the second half, just long balls and some crosses.“But we didn’t have the good luck that you need to win.””
