Mauricio Pellegrino says he is not concerned over his job as Southampton manager but admits his side’s confidence and results must improve, ahead of their meeting with managerless Everton.
Southampton sit 14th in the Premier League table with three wins from 12 games, and the boss revealed he would consider looking to the January transfer window to strengthen key areas within the squad.
Asked whether he fears for his future at St Mary’s, the Argentine said: “I am not scared about my job. I am scared about a lot of things, but not about my job.”
“In football, we need results all the time.
“The biggest risk in football is to work in football. Everything can happen and it can change in one game.”
Southampton have scored just nine league goals so far this season – the third fewest behind struggling sides Crystal Palace and Swansea.
“Always we are looking for a player that we think can improve our squad, but it’s not easy because in the Premier League every single team has got power,” he said.
“Sometimes the same club is fighting for the same player. But we are open to seeing the market and to check in which situation we can improve.”
