Mark Hughes has been appointed as the new manager of Southampton.

Hughes has signed a contract until the end of the season and will take charge of the team in the FA Cup tie against League One side Wigan at the weekend.

He told the official Southampton website: "It's a challenge I am excited by. It's a great opportunity to come back to a club I know well, a club I have got real affinity with, and I could not turn that down.

"I bring experience of the Premier League. I understand what it takes in this league to win games.

"But first and foremost I think it's about coming in and maybe being that different voice, that different message from myself and the staff, that will enable the players to recognise and focus on what needs to be done in this key period of the season.


We are delighted to confirm that Mark Hughes is #SaintsFC's new First Team Manager:
