Southampton: Players and staff make Ruben Selles demand

Southampton: Players and staff make Ruben Selles demand - Premier League News

Southampton staff and players have internally decided on their new manager as they reportedly ‘want’ Ruben Selles to take the reins.

The Lowdown: Saints seal impressive win…

The south coast side sealed a very impressive 1-0 win at Chelsea last weekend with midfield star James Ward-Prowse grabbing the game’s only goal.

Reports have suggested that Selles, currently taking interim charge of Southampton, is on a trial-run as Sport Republic and the board decide their next managerial step.

After the Saints’ victory at Stamford Bridge, Selles could hardly have started off better with a win and clean sheet against one of the Premier League‘s big name clubs.

The Latest: Southampton player and staff ‘want’ Selles…

According to reliable journalist Jacob Tanswell of The Athletic, Southampton players and staff desire Selles as their permanent manager as those inside the club make their feelings known.

He explained:

“Saints’ players and staff want Ruben Selles as manager – ‘he has the ability to make them run through brick walls.’

“Selles told home truths, pushed players & restored Southampton’s best strengths. He’s given fans & the club hope.”

The Verdict: Right man?

The Spaniard has now shown that he can guide Southampton to absolutely crucial top flight victories against star-studded opposition.

Southampton’s victory at Chelsea represents both their first win in four league games and a serious statement of intent from Selles – who has admitted that he wants the job.

The 39-year-old is not only ‘highly regarded’ by players, but also ‘ambitious‘ and fluent in multiple languages – suggesting Selles has the mentality to make it as a coach in world football’s most prestigious division.

While his lack of first team managerial experience comes as a caveat, there is only one way for him to gain that know-how – by being given a chance to fully coach Southampton in their battle against relegation.
