Who Is On The Tottenham Chopping Block?

One of the strangest managerial departures of the last few seasons came in January 2013 when Nigel Adkins’ contract was terminated with Southampton. After 3 progressive and successful years at the club, Adkins secured The Saints back-to-back promotion and was steadily climbing away from the relegation zone when the axe fell. Southampton were quick to replace the former Scunthorpe United manager with Argentine, Mauricio Pochettino, who came to the Premier League off the back of being terminated from La Liga …
