It's never, ever quiet on the South Coast when it comes to football.
After putting together the best half-season in recent memory, Southampton Football Club have hit the self-destruct button once again. Nicola Cortese, the tough-talking, hard-nosed Italian chairman of the club, has resigned from his position, as per The Guardian.
His firm, but positive, grasp on the club is now at an end. When he joined they were bottom of League One with a 10-point deduction, he leaves them in the top half of the Premier League just four years later.
Without Cortese's bulldog-like approach in refusing to sell a number of the club's stars, the question begs: which of the bright young talents will be sold?
