Eric Black divides opinions with saints fans, especially after the whole bribing scandal which occurred last year. Mauricio Pellegrino has selected two of his previous team to join him at Southampton, but Eric Black will continue at the club, according to The Daily Echo.
Black is said to be very popular with the players which could be a massive aid to Pellegrino. Fans were very anxious when Claude Puel was sacked as to which members of the dugout staff would keep their jobs. Fans will be delighted to see Dave Watson continue his part at the club especially after his recent spell within the England setup. Our English goalkeeping coach has been here since 2014 and was bought in by Ronald Koeman and has been here ever since. Black’s experience and knowledge of the Premier League could come as a massive help to new manager Mauricio Pellegrino.
