Hasenhüttl agreed to lead Southampton
Ralph Hasenhüttl agreed to take Southampton’s head coach vacant position.
The club from Saint Mary announced their breakup with Mark Hughes on Monday, after the team failed to win any of the last 10 Premier League matches and dropped into the relegation zone.
The club found the substitute for Hughes very soon. The media associated a lot of eminent specialists with Southampton, including David Moyes and Leonard Jardim, however, Sky Sports became aware that the club opted for Hasenhüttl.
Currently, club’s president Ralph Krueger and his colleagues are discussing the details of Hasenhüttl’s appointment, but a principle agreement with the Alpine Jurgen Klopp has already been reached.
RB Leipzig former manager should fly to England to sign a personal contract in the next 48 hours. Thus, Southampton will be able to get a new head coach right before the away match against Cardiff this weekend.
Hasenhüttl is rightly considered one of the most promising managers of the new wave. Ralph led RB Leipzig to second place in Bundesliga last season and left the team, failing to agree on a new contract.
