 Southampton have appointed Mauricio Pellegrino as their new manager.

The 45-year-old Argentine replaces Claude Puel, who was sacked earlier this month after one season in charge.

Pellegrino stood down as Alaves manager in late May, after losing the Spanish Cup final to Barcelona and finishing ninth in La Liga with a club that had been promoted the season before.

"My philosophy and the culture of the club will work well," said Pellegrino, who has signed a three-year deal.

"I want to win matches, be successful and develop a team spirit where everyone gives 100% and supports each other.

"I am excited and passionate about what the future holds."

Southampton vice-chairman Les Reed said former Liverpool defender Pellegrino "impressed us with his depth of knowledge, motivation and ability", adding he "quickly became our first choice".

"While he had other options, we are delighted he feels that St Mary's is the right place for him," he added.

Saints finished eighth in the Premier League last season, losing 16 games, and also reached the EFL Cup final, their first major final since 2003.
