Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino said on Tuesday he sympathised with former club Southampton, who sacked coach Mark Hughes on Monday, but he is confident the south-coast side have the resources to overcome their Premier League struggles.

Cape Town - Reports in the United Kingdom claim that David Moyes is interested in speaking to Southampton about their vacant managerial position following the sacking of Mark Hughes. He also led them to the semi-finals of the FA Cup, where they eventually lost to eventual winners Chelsea.

Hughes's successor is set to be the club's fourth manager in two years. Before the investment from Abu Dhabi, Hughes helped the club sign Vincent Kompany and Pablo Zabaleta, and they added Robinho after the takeover was confirmed on transfer deadline day 2008.

In eight months at Southampton, former Wales, Manchester City and Stoke City manager Hughes managed only five victories in 27 games in all competitions.

Hughes was hired in March with Southampton one place above the relegation zone.

Bush told son, George W. , 'I love you, too' before he died
The New York Times reported on Sunday that Bush's last words were an expression of love for his son and fellow former president. President Bush's mother and father were married at the church. "The result was the end of the Cold War and nuclear arms race".

"Always my affection is going to be there with my first club in England".

His next club was also in London as he took over QPR in January 2012 after Neil Warnock was sacked following a run of nine games without a win.

The Austrian is understood to have been convinced of the Saints' ambition and potential - despite their troubled start to the season - in discussions with chairman Ralph Krueger, director of football operations Ross Wilson and members of the club's board of directors.

Hughes returned to management at the end of the season, when he replaced Tony Pulis at Stoke.

The decision comes after the Saints drew 2-2 with Manchester United on Saturday, having led 2-0 during the first half.
