Ralph Hasenhuttl wants to carve out name as saviour of Southampton

Hasenhuttl urges Southampton to stick together

Hasenhuttl will be supported at Southampton by existing first-team assistant coach Kelvin Davis, who was in charge of the team against Tottenham, as well as head of goalkeeping Dave Watson and head of sports science Alek Gross.

"As soon as we met, Ralph's enthusiasm for football was contagious and his hunger to take on a new and challenging job in the Premier League was evident", said Krueger.

It was tempting to say that Ralph Hasenhuttl now knows the scale of the challenge that faces him at Southampton but the truth is the new manager was already painfully aware.

The 51-year-old former Austria striker bears comparison to Liverpool's Jurgen Klopp for his free speaking and his high-pressing strategy.

This is not new to most Saints fans, but to the incoming gaffer sat in the Wembley stands, this display will have made for some uncomfortable viewing at times.

Hasenhuttl left his post at RB Leipzig in May after two successful seasons at the helm, including steering them to second place behind Bayern Munich in 2016-17.

"Spurs have not had a Premier League draw in their last 19 games and I feel they will take maximum points at the King Power from an entertaining clash in the late kick-off on Saturday", Owen told BetVictor.

But Hasenhuttl is ready for the challenges ahead.

'The near future has to be to move as quickly as we can out of the [relegation] zone'. "I think he set marks in Germany with his kind of football and that really influenced my style, absolutely".

He said it would be "fantastic" if he could enjoy similar success but the first target was to pull away from the relegation zone. "If they like to go this way with us they are invited to, and when they follow us it will be an intensive, hard-working way".

Hasenhuttl will be looking to bring Leipzig's form from his time in charge to the club, but he could become part of an unwanted list on Saturday afternoon. "It will be a hard-working way", Hasenhuttl said.
