Southampton manager Mauricio Pochettino has stated his priorities are to pick up victories for the club and not to win over supporters.
The Argentinian's appointment at St Mary's last month was shadowed in controversy following the sacking of his predecessor Nigel Adkins, who many fans believed was doing a good job with the Saints.
Pochettino has since made a decent start to life in the Premier League and guided the Saints to a 3-1 victory over Manchester City in their last outing in the top flight.
The 40-year-old is slowly starting to win over the fans at Southampton following the dismissal of Adkins but the South American is more concerned about picking up more points with the Saints, who you can back using your free bet.
Pochettino said: "I said three weeks ago, it's never nice when they sack one of my colleagues.
"I got an offer from Southampton and I said yes. I had other offers from other teams but I chose Southampton.
"For me there is no controversy, it's just to work and to work from day one and I will carry on working in the project."
