Southampton Sacks Coach Ralph Hasenhuttl
English Premier League outfit, Southampton, have announced that Ralph Hasenhuttl has been sacked as manager of the struggling club.
Following their 4-1 loss to Newcastle United on Sunday, 6 November – which marks their eighth loss in 14 league games – the Saints posted a statement the following day, in which they announced the 55-year-old Austrian’s firing.
“Hasenhuttl, who was appointed in December 2018, departs having made a significant contribution to the club, overseeing some memorable results and also playing a key role in the development of our club infrastructure, identity and playing squad,” the statement reads.
In addition, they are now in talks with English Football League team, Luton Town, over acquiring the services of their manager, Nathan Jones.
“Luton Town can confirm that permission has been granted to Southampton to speak to Nathan Jones about their managerial vacancy following the Hatters’ match at Stoke,” Luton said in a statement.
“We would like to place on record that the Premier League club have approached the board in the correct manner … and that the whole situation is extremely amicable with Southampton and with Nathan. As a club, we will not be making any further comment until the process is complete.”
