Southampton have confirmed that the club has parted company with first team manager Ralph Hasenhüttl.
Hasenhüttl’s axing comes a day after the club suffered a 4-1 loss to Newcastle United on Sunday.
In a statement, Southampton stated that the reason they parted ways is because they believed that “it is an appropriate time to make a change”.
First Team Assistant Coach Richard Kitzbichler has also today left the club.
The club statement:
Southampton Football Club can confirm it has parted company with Men’s First Team Manager Ralph Hasenhüttl.
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.
