Offiical : Aribo, Edozie to get new coach at Southampton

Southampton have parted company with Ralph Hasenhüttl following a poor start to the Premier League season.

The Saints confirmed through their official website that the Austrian tactician will be replaced by First Team Lead Coach Rubén Sellés on an interim basis.


Ruben is expected to be in the Southampton dugout  when they take on Sheffield Wednesday in the Carabao Cup on Wednesday, October 9th 2022.


Super Eagles midfielder Joe Aribo and another summer signing of Nigerian descent Samuel Edozie are in contention to feature against the Owls. 

"Southampton Football Club can confirm it has parted company with Men's First Team Manager Ralph Hasenhüttl. First Team Assistant Coach Richard Kitzbichler has also today left the club," a statement read.

"Hasenhüttl, who was appointed in December 2018, departs having made a significant contribution to the club, overseeing some memorable results and also playing a key role in the development of our club infrastructure, identity and playing squad.


"However, we now believe it is an appropriate time to make a change. Everyone involved with the club would like to express their sincere thanks to Ralph for all of his efforts, as well as the unwavering commitment he has shown throughout his time as manager. First Team Lead Coach Rubén Sellés will take charge of the side on an interim basis for our game on Wednesday night. The club will be announcing a permanent replacement in due course."

During Hasenhüttl's tenure as coach, Aribo scored twice in fourteen Premier League games while Anglo-Nigerian winger Edozie had zero goal contribution in seven English topflight games.


Southampton have won three, drawn three and lost eight of their first 14 league fixtures and are 18th in the table.
