The Austrian manager has taken the charge of Southampton, who are currently in absolute dire straits.
Southampton’s new manager Ralph Hasenhuttl has said that he has come to the Premier League to make a name for himself. The 51-year-old former RB Leipzig manager has taken over the reins at the St Mary’s Stadium and is yet to start his regime as the new boss of the Saints. The Austrian mastermind was present yesterday at Wembley and watched his side continue their dismal run in the Premier League this season as they went down to Tottenham Hotspur by 3-1.
The South Coast club has managed to win one of their 15 matches so far in the Premier League, leading them to enter the relegation zone already. With more than half of the season left, it is going to be an arduous task for the new manager to get his side on track as he replaces Mark Hughes as the main man in charge of the Saints.
Hasenhuttl, however, has declared that he is out to make an impression at Southampton. The Austrian said, “It’s a big challenge, but also the logical next step in my career. My goal is to get my name known here in the Premier League,” he added, “When I left Leipzig I was thinking about my next step, and I want to stand in front of a new team, new language, to get developed personally and in my view of football. That’s why I made the decision to come to Southampton.”
He also said, “The step is not the easiest one, but I never want it easy in my life. I always challenge myself. I’m looking forward, not afraid of anything.”
