Southampton: Dan Sheldon shares news on Ralph Hasenhuttl

Southampton: Dan Sheldon shares news on Ralph Hasenhuttl -Southampton News

The Athletic journalist Dan Sheldon has shared a fresh report concerning the status of Southampton manager Ralph Hasenhuttl.

The Lowdown: Hasenhuttl at Southampton

Having joined the Saints in December 2018 after a successful period in charge at RB Leipzig, the 55-year-old has gone on to lead the south coast club in 167 games, having averaged 1.28 points per match.

Having peaked in the 2019/20 season with an 11th-place finish in the Premier League, Hasenhuttl has never been able to reach the heights of Mauricio Pochettino, Ronald Koeman and Claude Puel, who all finished in the top eight as manager of the club.

The Latest: Sheldon’s latest on Hasenhuttl

With just two wins from their opening eight league games this time around, speculation has arisen as to Hasenhuttl’s future at St Mary’s, and Sheldon has now provided an update on the Austrian’s status at Southampton..

Taking to Twitter in sharing a corresponding article for The Athletic, the reliable journalist claimed: “Ralph Hasenhuttl maintains the board’s support but there is no doubt he is under increasing pressure.

“Some say time is needed to work with a young squad. Others point to the fact he’s been at #SaintsFC since Dec 2018 & it has become stale.”

The Verdict: Results need to improve

As per The Athletic, with many Saints insiders believing that the Austrian is now on borrowed time, it can only be so long until Hasenhuttl is relieved of his duties as manager.

With reports of the players having voiced their concerns with the board at the start of the season, it appears that there is no going back on the relationship at St Mary’s.

Should Hasenhuttl be sacked?

Yes, time is up

Yes, time is up

No, give him more time

No, give him more time

Therefore, unless there are significant improvements to their results, with the Saints having gained just 12 points from their previous 20 Premier League matches, Hasenhuttl’s departure in the near future seems rather likely.
