“I am really happy to become the new coach of Southampton Football Club,” Pellegrino said.

“The club has a great reputation for having a strong and stable structure, competing in the Premier
League and playing attractive football.

“I think my philosophy and the culture of the club will work well together. We have to be a team on and off the pitch; I want to make the supporters proud of the players and to feel part of the game every week.

“I want to win matches, be successful and develop a team spirit where everyone gives 100 percent and supports each other.

“I am excited and passionate about what the future holds for us and look forward to meeting the players and beginning our preparation for the new season.”
