South Coast club Southampton have made the announcement of appointing a new manager to the club following the dismissal of Ralph Hasenhuttl.

After Ralph Hasenhuttl left, South Coast club Southampton announced that they had hired former Luton and Stoke manager Nathan Jones as their new manager.

After losing to Newcastle, the Austrian was fired from his position and left St. Mary’s after just under four years in charge.

A number of names were linked with the post but former Luton boss Jones was immediately installed as the favourite – the Hatters previously confirmed that they had granted permission for the Premier League side to open discussions with the 49-year-old.

Recent sources indicate that a deal has been reached during those negotiations, and the Saints have officially confirmed the move on a three-and-a-half-year contract.

A club statement read: “Southampton Football Club is delighted to announce it has appointed Nathan Jones as its new Men’s First Team Manager.

“The 49-year-old joins from Luton Town, signing a three-and-a-half-year contract at St Mary’s, where he will also joined by First Team Coaches Chris Cohen and Alan Sheehan.


“Jones takes over ahead of the Premier League trip to Liverpool this weekend, which will followed by an extended period in which he can with the squad during the World Cup break.”

Nathan Jones is the new Southampton manager

Following his appointment, Jones will make his debut as Southampton’s manager against Liverpool this weekend, hoping to take the club out of the relegation zone with at least a point. He has already seen his new team in action, having visited the Saints’ midweek EFL Cup match against League One side Sheffield Wednesday.

Southampton narrowly defeated their opponents in a penalty shootout, 6-5 after a 1-1 tie in regulation time to go to the last 16. Speaking about his appointment, Jones said: “I’m really proud to given this opportunity.

“I know a lot about the club from back in the days of The Dell, to coming here to St Mary’s, and it’s a wonderful football club. A lot of my family are Southampton fans, which doesn’t half help, and I feel really, really proud to given the opportunity, and I’m really looking forward to getting started.

“Obviously, I wanted to manage in the Premier League, I’ve dreamt of that since I’ve become a coach or a manager, but this club in particular – because of how it’s run, because of the structure, because of how they look deeper than just results – really appeals to me.”
