    I said this on another article, if Cortese has been interfering and picking the team for the last three years, then surely it doesn't matter if Adkins is gone as Cortese is the master mind who guided us to back-to-back promtions. Therefore, we should be chanting his name on Monday in support as he's one of the most successful managers/chairman we've had. Or is it only when we lose that we can claim Cortes picks the team?
    Personally it's the biggest load of rubbish I've ever heard and I doubt Cortese plays any part in team selection, otherwise Ramirez would have started every match."

Saints have confirmed the appointments of new manager Mauricio Pochettino's backroom staff.

Jesús Pérez, who worked as a technical coach under Pochettino at Espanyol, is the assistant boss.

The 41-year-old started at the Spanish side as a first-team analyst in 2010, before working his way up.

Miguel D'Agostino, 41, takes over as a first-team coach, while former Spanish international Toni Jiménez, 42, is the goalkeeping coach.

Like Pérez, they also worked under Pochettino at Espanyol, with Jiménez having served as his number two at the Spanish club.

The trio will be assisted by technical support coach Fran Alonso.

Nigel Adkins' backroom staff - Andy Crosby, Dean Wilkins and Jim Stannard - had all been relieved of their duties following the dismissal of the previous boss last week.
