Hasenhüttl, Moyes and other candidates for manager role at Southampton
The British media has begun to speculate about who will take the vacant position on St. Mary immediately after the dismissal of Southampton’s head coach.
Earlier on Monday, the Saints’ bosses decided to part with Mark Hughes, under command of whom the team didn’t win any of the last 10 Premier League matches and sank into the relegation zone.
One of the favourites on Mark’s place is Ralph Hasenhüttl, who has been out of work since the end of the last season, when he left RB Leipzig. The Daily Echo reported about Southampton’s interest in the 51-year-old Austrian, nicknamed Alpine Jurgen Klopp.
At the same time, Sky Sports claims that David Moyes is open to work with an unexpected outsider of this season. David helped West Ham to stay in the Premier League in the last campaign but didn’t received a new contract.
Sky Sports also has information that Nigel Pearson and Craig Shakespeare, the two former Leicester’s co-leaders, would be glad to lead the Saints. Pearson previously led Southampton for a short time in his career and even helped the club to avoid relegation from the Championship on the final day of the 2007/08 season.
