Hasenhüttl confirmed as new Southampton manager

MANAGER: Ralph Hasenhüttl.

Austrian Ralph Hasenhuttl has been confirmed as the new manager of Southampton.

The former RB Leipzig boss replaces Mark Hughes, who was sacked on Monday with Saints 18th in the table.

He has signed a two-and-a-half year deal with the club.

The fresh Saints boss guided newly-promoted RB Leipzig to second place in the Bundesliga in the 2016-17 season. He left the club in May 2018 after an argument over a new contract.
