Flocking to Twitter, many Southampton fans have erupted over a behind-the-scenes managerial claim involving Ralph Hasenhuttl.
The 54-year-old appears to be under mounting pressure amid the Saints’ run of form and overall poor start to the 2021/2022 Premier League season.
If Hasenhuttl is sacked, who should the Saints hire?

Southampton, after losing key players like Danny Ings and Jannik Vestergaard in the summer window, find themselves 17th in the table having won no games so far.
While they have enjoyed some noteworthy results against the likes of Manchester City, Manchester United and West Ham – managing to grab a point against each of the European trio – Hasenhuttl’s men could still be flirting with a possible drop to the Championship at the end of this season.
Football Insider and journalist Wayne Veysey have now come out with a behind-the-scenes claim involving Saints’ boss, with Southampton players apparently expecting him to be sacked in the ‘coming weeks’.
Indeed, a ‘dressing room’ source has apparently told the outlet that there is a ‘strong feeling’ among members of the squad that he won’t be in charge at St Mary’s much longer.
Flocking to this claim, many supporters have erupted in response – find all of their best verdicts from Twitter down below.

“Started playing Southampton in Europa
What a time to be alive”
“Wouldn’t surprise me at all, Eddie Howe getting ready”

“Would expect and hope it is a foregone conclusion if results from forthcoming crop of ‘easy’ games don’t contain several wins. It’s now or never for Hasellhoff”
“Get him gone”
“Whoever Wayne Veysey is I hope his sources are good”
