These are not easy times for Southampton and Ralph Hasenhüttl. Born in Graz, he only finished 15th with the “Saints” in the past Premier League season. In the last 13 games it recorded ten defeats. In the last six games, no victory could be brought in. This does not meet the expectations and demands of the traditional English club, which is planning a change in the coaching staff for the coming season. The club is about to be taken over by Serbian entrepreneur Dragan Solak.
However, Solak leaves two options open. On the one hand, Hasenhüttl could remain a coach. However, the Austrian would have to put together a completely new team, which would create a new environment. The other option should probably taste less to the former Leipzig coach. This includes a separation from Hasenhüttl in the summer. Above all, his ego is viewed critically internally. A separation in the summer can therefore not be ruled out. Hasenhüttl’s contract runs until 2024. In his first season he finished tenth with Southampton. However, Southampton have only finished 15th in the last two seasons.
