Mark Hughes wants quick decision on Southampton future

Multiple reports say that Carlos Carvalhal will leave Swansea City after their final game of the season on Sunday.

Manolo Gabbiadini's 72nd-minute victor - four minutes after the Italian striker had come on as a substitute - pushed Swansea towards the Premier League trapdoor and confirmed West Brom's relegation.

"We have to be careful".

Southampton manager Mark Hughes said a mix up over the team's hotel in Swansea that saw their block booking cancelled had inspired his team to their crucial win on Tuesday night.

Carlos Carvahal's side enjoyed an initial resurgence after he was hired in late December, but they have since slipped into a near-certain relegation position. "But [this season] we've done better than the others, we can not deny".

Swansea will now seek a manager who can lead them in the Championship, with the aim of returning straight back to the Premier League. "At this moment we're not relegated", he shrugged.

"Collectively we let ourselves down".

"Mathematically we're not safe and that's a fact and we still have another game", the 26-year-old Spaniard said.

Due to the goal difference it could all but seal Swansea's fate.

The good news for Carvalhal is that the Potters certainly look the most accommodating opposition after a week in which their owners Peter and John Coates admitted the club needed a major overhaul after losing some of its "core values".

The Jacks will need a heavy win at home to Stoke City and hope that The Saints lose big to champions Manchester City.

"They were emotion as a effect of winning this key game".

"If we still believe then we can stay (in the Premier League), we must do our part on the weekend and win the game".
