Nicola Cortese has made Southampton 'a laughing stock', says Matt Le Tissier

Daily Echo: Matt Le Tissier Matt Le Tissier

Matt Le Tissier says Nicola Cortese has turned Saints into “a laughing stock.”

The Saints legend was left disappointed by the executive chairman’s decision to sack manager Nigel Adkins and replace him with Mauricio Pochettino.

“Sadly it doesn’t surprise me,” he said.

“It’s come at a very strange time of the season considering we have only lost two of our last 12 games and have come back from 2-0 down against Chelsea during the week.

“It seems a little bit odd to me but the way that club’s been run by the chairman over the last couple of years nothing surprises you anymore sadly.

“Once again I think he has made Southampton a bit of a laughing stock.”

Le Tissier admitted to not knowing much about Pochettino but instead was sympathetic towards the treatment of Adkins.

“Very little to be honest with you. It’s not something I’ve been thinking about to be honest,” he said of the new manager.

“I’m still a little bit shocked at the timing of the sacking of Nigel.

“It’s very very strange and it’s an odd thing to have to come to terms with today.”

He added: “It is a little bit sudden but he was under a bit of pressure early in the season and we thought it might happen then.

“Whether he couldn’t get the man that he wanted then we don’t know but it’s slightly odd the timing of it all. It’s very very strange.”

Agreed, we move on and be thankful for Nigel's contribution. Cortese is in charge and we must trust him.

Serious question for you, what was your initial reaction on here when Pardew was sacked? Let's assume the various stories of why he was sacked are false.

it is not against the team but against Cortese who does not represent the views of probably 28k fans of SFC if the 95% disagreement with the decision is representative of all fans views for the remaining 80 minutes we can support the team. And is it not a bit presumptious and pessimistic to assume we would lose if dissent was voiced ?????????

Have you not been aware of how Chelsea's home form has declined since they sacked Di Matteo?

Teams perform better at home because fans influence player's perfomances. Do your complaining at the end of the game, if you must.

Cortese may or may not have loaded the relegation gun but the fans have the power to fire it.

You are over-reacting, if Cortese is driven out, the money will go with him and where will we be then? I am as upset as anyone, but have to be realistic. Support the team through thick and thin if you are a true Saints supporter, it is going to be tougher than ever, the timing is appalling, it is going to take everything we have got.

Exactly, Cortese is the man who is most responsible for Saints rising from the dead. He took on the task given to him by ML and has done a massive job on us.

This negative hysteria from some people is so typical. Take a deep breath, count to 10 and take a minute to think before you go all Schwarzenegger on us.

I agree with most of your post Osprey. I hope you agree that being able to voice dissent is equally important as long as it is channeled correctly. I also dispute that there is an unbreakable link between cortese and money in the club. Isn't Cortese just the vehicle that brought us the investment he's not to my knowledge the actual investor in the club. And I do regard myself to be a "true Saints supporter" just because I am concerned about this ludicrous (in my opinion) decision doesn't mean i'm not

I believe Le Tiss is wrong here, Cortese has not made Saints a laughing stock, he has made us a premier league side. Easy to criticise but remember the Mickey Fialca debacle. Time to thank Nigel for his work and to get behind the new guy. Must be something about him as he has been on the radar of Chelsea, Real Madrid and Barcelona. Expect some real quality signings to show that Nicola is putting his money where his mouth is.

I have supported Saints for over 30 years and i am fed up with fans of the 'Big 5' sneering at Saints. We are considered a joke of a club who produces players for other clubs to benefit from. Cr*p performances like Chelsea in the cup give their smug gloating armchair fans all the ammunition they need to take the p*ss out of proper fans like us. On Thursday i was so proud - coming from 2 nil down to one of the plastic clubs and taking pride at fact the press who couldn't bring themselves to praise us as they blamed Chelsea for being poor instead.
Today is another story - this morning when i went to work we had a brilliant manager who was taking us places. He was learning all the time and has taken us from League One to where we are now in super quick time. When he was waiting to announce the new manager after sacking Pardew - Cortese said something along the lines that he would appoint a manager that would prove he (Cortese) knew what he was doing. Will he be making a statement to apologise for his huge mistake?
I love Southampton and hope we stay up but if we do we owe it to NA and HIS team nobody else. If we go down Cortese had better stand down or we - as fans - should demand HE is sacked. And in the meantime i suggest he keeps his smug face hidden unless he can give a bl**dy good reason for sacking NA.

...DILUSIONAL OWNERS. I,ve been a Southampton fan for 46 years; i cannot think of a time i have felt so ashamed by the actions of this club. A fellow fan posted today; 'if this is what our club has become then i wish it had died when it was in administration'. How in Gods name can you treat a man like this...i cannot believe Marcus would have allowed this to happen. It is clear that with the speed of the replacement, Cortese has gone behind Nigels back, knifed him when his back was turned. If the owners of this club decide to walk away....THERE WILL BE OTHERS, who will buy this great club, right now i hope they do walk away and take this joker with them; then maybe we will get an owner who understands...''that the most important person at a club is THE MANAGER and not the chairman.'' .......Alex Fergusons words not mine.

If the owners of this club decide to walk away....THERE WILL BE OTHERS, who will buy this great club, right now i hope they do walk away and take this joker with them; then maybe we will get an owner who understands...''that the most important person at a club is THE MANAGER and not the chairman.'' .......Alex Fergusons words not mine.

Haven't commented for ages as felt all was going as expected and happy with how we were adjusting. Not sure how to feel now tho. Cortese is normally prooved right so will give him benefit of doubt...............
..However, if we are not top 10 at end of season wont renew my season ticket as feel its too expensive and fed up with games being moved to stupid times. May as well save my money and watch on Sky. I expect MUCH higher than first season survival now or else why replace Nigel?

Why is Matty is complaining about the way the club has been run the last few years?? Promotion after promotion - financially secure !! I don't think hos 'consortium' would have us in the same position at this moment in time !!
Sometimes it's best just to shut up when all you have is sour grapes !!

Well NC / NP have just 2 weeks to win over supporters by bringing in quality signings. Failure to do so and NP could be in for a rough ride particularly if results go against him.

We are in a relegation fight and our greatest strenght was our togetherness. That has now gone. If we go down now it will be a disaster. And who for? an average Spanish manager who was sacked because of bad form.....not good

Cortese has got every major decision right. The new appointment is progress and is intended to establish our Premiership status for the long term.

You're entitled to your opinion but I firmly believe that there's no point complaining about it as it will have a severe affect on the team.

The decision (whether right or wrong) has been made, we have to move on with an open mind and continue to support the regime that has steered us back to the summit of English football.

This decision shows that NC does not understand Football or the supporters. Has he not seen the adverse affect that the decision to appoint Benitez has had with the Fans, or does he not care about the fans? 78% supported Nigel earlier in the season when things were sticky. And 95% now say its the wrong decision. Are we all wrong?
It is completely the wrong time to be changing Manager. Now all the focus on Monday evening will be on the change of Manager not on the need to get 3 points. Whoever is advising NC has got this one wrong. We will now be struggling to concentrate on the football, and moving up the table. Thank you Nigel for all your hard work and good luck at your next club, they are going to get a great Manager.

Gutted by this.We may well have just lost the next Ferguson. NC is a ruthless banker who has not an ounce of respect for the fans or the paying customer. Unfortunately the SKY money in the Prem is a lot more than the gate receipts and he sees only ££££s. Good luck for the future Nige. U will be unemployed for about a milisecond. Pick a good club and show us all what a bad decision this is. Will never 4get the emotion u showed in your TV interview when we got promoted last year .However we now need to get behind the team and the new guy. It's not his fault but an appreciation for NA would be VERY appropriate. I don't think this will trigger a mass exodus of players as some are predicting. They are mainly on long term contracts and if there is one person who will hold them to that it is our charming chairman. Would'nt be surprised to see a couple of signings soon to divert attention away from this.

Batesie firstly HOW DARE YOU SUGGEST I only have 2 brain cells you know NOTHING at all about who I am and my level of intelligence. So keep your posts in future to the facts at hand rather than personal insults. My issue is more with who NC replaced Adkins with - His managerial record is not exactly glowing is it 33.6% win rate with Espanyol to me suggests this new guy is not up to much. Had we got Di Matteo for example I could be calmer. I am saddened that most people seem to think NC is a GOD and it is mainly him that got us where we are today rather than recognising how much the Liebherrs, NA and the players contributed as well. NC was the agent that introduced the Liebherrs to SFC but to credit him with our success is a bit harsh on Adkins in my opinion. Others will disagree with me which is fine but where I agree on reflection is that being all angsty on Monday will backfire and won't reverse the madness of this decision. It is also disingenous to suggest that should NC leave we would die as a club as someone would replace him. You never know could even be someone better. So to conclude please DO NOT try and convince me I am not wrong to have lost a large amount of respect today for NC.

Brilliant, a sure fire way to lose! How about we carry on supporting the team whilst we're on the pitch!
it is not against the team but against Cortese who does not represent the views of probably 28k fans of SFC if the 95% disagreement with the decision is representative of all fans views for the remaining 80 minutes we can support the team. And is it not a bit presumptious and pessimistic to assume we would lose if dissent was voiced ?????????
Have you not been aware of how Chelsea's home form has declined since they sacked Di Matteo?

Teams perform better at home because fans influence player's perfomances. Do your complaining at the end of the game, if you must.

Cortese may or may not have loaded the relegation gun but the fans have the power to fire it.
Correct. Chelsea fans organised clapping for one minute was enough and is enough to cause the team to lose.

There is no other explanation for why a team that scores freely otherwise is so nervous at home.

We have to accept that. However, it is a difficult one because I don't believe that you can just throw away your ethics for the sake of a win. If you do that you throw away your soul.

I don't even know the guy coming in and any criticism is not aimed at him in the slightest, but he surely has to know what he's coming into.

Yes, neither him or the team deserve to suffer, but it is a simple fact that it is going to happen. We've been there 1000 times before and we've seen it a 1000 other times at Blackburn and Chelsea and everywhere else, there will be an outcry, and rightly so, somebody is trying to destroy what our club stands for. If we don't protest, he already has.

We've been there 1000 times before and we've seen it a 1000 other times at Blackburn and Chelsea and everywhere else, there will be an outcry, and rightly so, somebody is trying to destroy what our club stands for. If we don't protest, he already has. SaintJD

just kidding says...

I have a strange feeling that this news is not a shock to Nigel. He probably knew that this was going to happen for a while, and as much as it sucks, it is after all just football buisness. I will thank him for his tremendous contribution and wish him well for his future as a football coach wherever he decides to go next. In the meantime we have a club to support, and regardless of how you feel about this, It may just be that the people in charge of the club may just want to take it further than we could possibly imagine. I for one will not complain about that. So onward and upward, lets give him a rousing send off, but seriously,please dont mirror the Chelsea fans, those guys act like spoilt brats and are completly nuts.

You forget Cortse is not the owner, Herr Liebeherr's family is and they have honoured his wishes to keep Saints under their control.

It is Lieberherr's money that he left that is keeping our club alive, not Cortse cos he is only holding the fort for the Liebeherr's family and spending Markus's money for buying players, look after our stadium and training ground, etc with the agreement of Liebeherr's family who would release the money to Cortese.

Good luck Nigel, good luck new bloke and most importantly good luck to the Saints!
We are a laughing stock because people are laughing at us.... Just watched someone laughing on SKY.... They seemed to see the funny side of a club like us sacking a manager who has been successful and replacing him with one that has been a failure.

Cortese, yet again an office pen pusher that knows jack about football only the money side of it. Adkins was getting it right and then Mr Jumped Up Penpusher interferes. I wish Nigel the very best and hope Mr. Cortese regrets this day. Especially when we need a new manager because this one is a big failure, reading his wikipedia he's never finished above mid-table. And then released from his duties.

So some of you are saying roll over and take this and don't protest verbally at the game? Well I support Nigel and the team and think it's disgusting the Italian tyrant has done this.

Remember this is the guy who wanted Nigel to walk from Scunthorpe so we wouldn't have to pay compensation..

Cortese is a scumbag & Nigel is a man of such integrity, I know where my loyalty lies.
There is no Nigel and the team. Not anymore.

Some fans need to get a grip, so many drama queens support this club. Yes its sad and I'm gutted for Adkins but the players will need support, its Saints you support and like or not Cortese is the man that has got us where we are, he chooses what to do with the money, he employees the staff. Let him get on with it and sing Saints to a victory on Monday not send out negative vibes and cause Saints to miss out on three points.

Firstly MLT keep your mouth shut you stirrer. Just because your tin pot consortium failed and Leibherr took over.
Secondly anyone who boos protests or anything else isnt a Saints fan. Ive even heard some plebs saying they want us to lose to show Nicola up.
I think we have a brillant new manager who can take us up to the next level, think about some of the dopey decisions Adkins has made this season that have cost us points. We were killing Man utd for example until he made those stupid substitutions.

You are a laughing stock anyway - everyone who knows whats what in football knows that - however le-tis is right - it is an embarresment and slur on the history of saints (lol) to sack what would appear to be a compedent manager in favour of some ole manager with no prem experience.

Good luck!!

I can understand people being upset. But some of the comments are very abusive.So far NC seems to have got the big decisions right. The new manager has done nothing wrong. He and the team need our support. At the end of the season we will see, but right now we need to be positive. And to those fans who have said they wont ever step back into St May's or they wont renew their season tickets, think yourself lucky you are in a position to go every Saturday.

Gutted for Adkins; a genuinely nice fella. Rivalry aside, you couldn't help but like him. I liked the way he always acknowldged the fans when so many others take us fans for granted. I still think you will escape relegation...and if you start feeling down, get some perspective and imagine how we are feeling!!!!
As an afterthought some of the Saints fans on the News website are great, but some of them are pathetic. I know Pompey have some who do the same here, so, on behalf of all the true decent Pompey fans, I apologise for any of our idiots on this site. Let's get the fun banter going again without the bile and nastiness. PUP
