Indeed, the South Coast club did well under Pochettino and the Argentine was rewarded with a career move that now sees him challenging for the Premier League title.
But, under Koeman, Southampton have consistently maintained a high level. And former Premier League midfielder turned pundit Hutchison believes the Dutchman could be off to Barcelona very soon.
He is also surprised Arsenal haven't yet made a move for the Saints boss. He tweeted:
I hope not for Saints fans.— Don Hutchison (@donhutch4) April 19, 2016
But I sooo could see Ronald Koeman at Barca soon.
Not sure why Arsenal don’t snap him up.
Southampton currently sit seventh in the top flight and look relatively safe when it comes to a top-eight finish - Stoke City have slipped up of late.
Liverpool have two games in hand over the Saints so should leapfrog them. But that doesn't take anything away from another terrific Southampton campaign, one that posed more challenges to Koeman yet saw him deal with them just as effectively.
