Southampton boss Mauricio Pochettino has enjoyed a higher win percentage this season than Brendan Rodgers did in his last campaign at Swansea City.

Rodgers was appointed Liverpool boss in the summer of 2012 after an impressive season with Swansea in the Premier League, having won promotion with the South Wales club.  The Northern Irishman soon became Liverpool owner John W Henry’s first choice to succeed Kenny Dalglish, who was sacked following a second spell as manager, and Rodgers was soon appointed at Anfield, where he has proven have been a success by almost leading the Reds to the Premier League title and winning the LMA Manager of the Year award.  However, Rodgers, according to statistics, did not enjoy as strong a season as Pochettino at Southampton in his finally season at the Liberty Stadium. Pochettino is being highly tipped to be appointed as head coach at Tottenham after leading Southampton to an eighth-placed finish with a win percentage of 39. 5% while Rodgers’ win percentage was a good deal lower at 31. 5% as Swansea finished 11th.  The Argentine also eclipses Roberto Martinez’s win percentage in his final season at Wigan Athletic before leaving for Everton – the Latics were relegated from the Premier League in the 2012-13 season with a win percentage of 23. 6%, although they did win the FA Cup.
