Southampton: Saints told to make ‘brave’ Ruben Selles hire

Southampton: Saints told to make 'brave' Ruben Selles hire - Premier League News

Southampton‘s board have been told to appoint interim boss Ruben Selles permanently after a brilliant 1-0 win over Chelsea.

The Lowdown: Saints seal win…

The Saints sealed a vital 1-0 win at Stamford Bridge on Saturday, a result which gifts the club a boost in their fight for Premier League survival whilst enhancing the credentials of Selles in the dug-out.

Southampton’s temporary head coach enjoyed a stellar first audition in full charge, securing a clean sheet and displaying his managerial know-how as the south coast side triumphed over star-studded opposition.

The Latest: Southampton told to make ‘brave’ Selles appointment…

Speaking to Spanish outlet AS (via Sport Witness), a man who knows Selles very well from their time working together in Greece, Oscar Fernandez, has told the Southampton board to give him the job permanently.

He claims the Spaniard is ‘very qualified’ and a ‘brave guy’ with ‘many skills’ – endorsing his former colleague for a crunch job in England’s top flight.

After Southampton’s win at Chelsea, AS themselves go on to claim that Selles can be considered ‘very close to the elite’.

The Verdict: Go for it…

Given the lack of stand-out candidates out there, we believe Selles may well be the right man for the job for a number of reasons.

The Southampton squad and players reportedly want their tactician to take the role full time and reports claim he is ‘highly regarded‘ by the St. Mary’s squad.

What’s more, the 39-year-old has already been called ‘ambitious’ and can speak multiple languages fluently – adding to his credentials that he can manage egos from a number of different parts of the world.

He could hardly have got off to a better start with that crucial win in west London and we believe his permanent appointment may only be a matter of time.
