Wolves' next opponents Southampton considering sacking Nathan Jones

Southampton manager Nathan Jones is reportedly being considered for the sack, with Wolves next up for the Saints.

Wanderers are fresh off the back of their result of the season – a 3-0 win over Liverpool.

Julen Lopetegui’s side were fantastic at Molineux on Saturday, and will have taken huge confidence from the result.

Things are starting to fall into place now, and the new signings are already proving their worth.

It’s Southampton on Saturday for Wolves, and it’s a very good time to be playing them.

Because according to the Daily Mail, Jones is already under mounting pressure at St. Mary’s Stadium. TalkSPORT have claimed his position is now ‘under review’.

Jones only became their manager at the start of November, shortly after Wolves confirmed the appointment of Lopetegui.

But it has been a dismal start for the 49-year-old, and their 3-0 loss to Brentford at the weekend is said to have really disappointed the ownership, who were in attendance.

That was the sixth defeat in seven Premier League games under Jones.

Recently, Jones stated that he had ‘compromised’ his methods that made his successful at Luton Town because of fans and ‘certain players’.

His comments have apparently caused a bit of upset, with some Southampton players questioning his approach. Apparently, some have been alarmed at him becoming ‘too emotional’.

It seems all is not well right now at Southampton and that’s a big boost for Wolves.

They have really struggled for results under Jones, and to read claims some players are already questioning him makes this game a very winnable.

Wolves have just turned Liverpool over 3-0. Confidence should be sky-high.

And it could be that this narrative about Jones will help Wolves to smell blood in the water.

Wolves need to be following up the win against Liverpool. And right now Southampton are probably the team you would perhaps handpick as the next opponent to do that.
