The English club Southampton have just put an end to its collaboration with the technician in French, Claude Puel.
The residence of Claude Puel to Southampton only lasted a single season. This Wednesday, through a statement, the English club announced that the contract of the coach French has been terminated. The former coach of Nice must leave his place. And it is the German Thomas Tuchel (ex-Borussia Dortmund) is sensed for him.
What’s club Diego Costa became persona non grata in Chelsea ?
“Anyone in Southampton would like to thank Claude for his great work and his devotion this year. The highlight of the season was the final of the League Cup at Wembley. A day that our supporters chériront forever. We wish him the best for the future”, stated the press release.
In addition to the place in the final of the League Cup (lost in last minute against MU), Puel has also allowed the Saints to keep themselves in the Top 10 of the Premier League. Sportingly speaking, his dismissal is therefore a surprise. However, it would seem that his relations with the board and the chairman Ralph Krueger were not good.
Puel did not wait to be fired to begin to discuss with other clubs. Recently, he was in talks with AS Saint-Etienne and FC Nantes. Finally, other technicians have been selected to coach these courses. But, a return of Puel in Ligue 1 remains a hypothesis feasible.
