There were times like this…’Relegation in 11 years’ Southampton’s splendid past → Now to part 2

Southampton, which once shook the English Premier League (EPL), will not be seen in the EPL for a while.

Southampton lost 0-2 in the 36th round of the English Premier League (EPL) in the 2022-23 season against Fulham held at St. Mary Stadium in Southampton, England on the 13th at 11:00 pm (Korean time). Southampton, which failed to earn points, was confirmed to be relegated as the gap with Everton in 17th place widened to 8 points.

Southampton needed a victory,토스카지노 but Fulham took the lead. In the third minute of the second half, Southampton’s defense collapsed in an instant. Vinicius, who easily seized the opportunity to score, pushed it into the empty goal post. Soton’s defeat deepened as they also conceded a goal to Mitrovic in the 27th minute of the second half. In the end, Southampton lost helplessly at home and relegation was confirmed.

Southampton was the representative of the EPL. After promotion to the EPL was confirmed in the 2011-12 season, it quickly grew into a mid-table team. After showing good results under coach Mauricio Pochettino, the team has been stably established. They achieved good results by finishing 7th in the 2014-15 season and 6th in the league in the 2015-16 season.

There were so many good players that it was called a treasure house. England’s ‘The Sun’ highlighted the Southampton lineup, which was spectacular in the mid-2010s. Graziano Pele was at the forefront, and Jay Rodriguez and Sadio Mane were located on the left and right.

Dusan Tadic was right under Pele, with Victor Wanyama and Morgan Schneiderlin in the midfield. The defense consisted of Ryan Butland, Toby Alderweireld, Jose Fonte and Nathaniel Cline. The goalkeeper was Fraser Foster.

Mane and Klein went to Liverpool, Wanyama and Alderweireld went to Tottenham Hotspur, and Schneiderlin went to Manchester United. Tadic went to Ajax and wrote a page in history, such as winning the European Football Federation (UEFA) Champions League (UCL) and winning the league. Ponte has been a regular centre-back for Portugal until recently, while Foster currently plays for Tottenham.

In addition, talented players such as Ricky Lambert, Adam Lallana, Virgil Van Dyke, Danny Ings, and James Ward-Prowse played an active role. Southampton, which was once called the EPL’s patron, a success story of small and medium clubs, and a report of prospects, will disappear into the back of history.

In fact, it’s not just this season that has been shaken. From the 2017-18 season, performance has declined sharply. Each season they have finished on the edge of the relegation zone. Under coach Ralph Hasenhüttl, he briefly shone, but not as powerfully as he once did.

He sacked coach Hasen Whittle and brought in coach Nathan Jones, who was sacked again after showing the worst sluggishness. Ruben Seles, who was the first team coach, took over as an assistant manager and dreamed of a rebound, but he could not avoid relegation. From the next season, he will play in the championship (2nd division) and aim for promotion to the EPL again. Due to the relegation, the departure of key players became inevitable.
