Pochettino thanks Saints fans for welcome

Southampton's new manager Mauricio Pochettino praised his players and the club's supporters after beginning his reign at St Mary's with a point from a 0-0 draw against Everton.

The Argentine was appointed on Friday after the club's controversial dismissal of Nigel Adkins, who had led them to back-to-back promotions from League One and steered them to 15th in the top flight.

Southampton supporters had been expected to stage a white handkerchief protest - along Spanish lines - against the sacking of the popular Adkins, but that failed to materialise.

And although there were chants of "one Nigel Adkins", former Espanyol manager Pochettino, who had spoken last week of his need to win over the supporters, was given a good reception.

Speaking through an interpreter, he told Sky Sports: "I want to thank the players for the three days working with them - they have done very well.

"I want to thank the supporters for the very kind reception they have given me. It was amazing."

Pochettino's evening could have been even better had his side taken their chances after enjoying spells of dominance against the Merseysiders, particularly before the break.

Nikica Jelavic and Leighton Baines both cleared off the line, while Toffees goalkeeper Tim Howard made some good saves.

"Tonight we have done very well and created at least seven good chances to score," Pochettino said.

"The only shame was that we didn't score the goals, but we created a lot of chances against a very good side in Everton, who are fifth in the league.

"We deserve a lot of credit, although we did suffer a bit more in the second half. But we were creating chances and just needed that bit more luck."

Southampton's Morgan Schneiderlin, man of the match on Monday, praised the new manager and said: "I think he's been great.

"In the next couple of weeks we will get to know him better. Now we go away for a couple of days [to a training camp] to get to know him and what he really wants from us."
