Southampton boss Hasenhuttl addresses links he could be making move to Manchester United
Southampton boss Ralph Hasenhuttl has addressed links with the Manchester United hot seat.
Solskjaer has been at the club for a couple of seasons now and despite leading the club back into the Champions League and playing some good football, the results have not gone down the best at the start of this season.
The likes of Mauricio Pochettino and Massimiliano Allegri have been touted as potential replacements for the Norwegian, while Hasenhuttl has been mooted as an alternative option after his outstanding work on the South Coast.
The Saints were in real danger of being relegated to the Championship when he took over, but the Austrian head coach has successfully steered them towards the top half of the table on a relatively modest transfer budget.
But amid the speculation he could take over from Solskjaer at United, the 53-year-old manager played down any suggestion of being in line for the top job in Manchester, he was quoted on Sky Sports:”It is not really something I listen to,” said Hasenhuttl when quizzed on speculation over his future. “I find myself listening to the radio when they talk about football, it is interesting to hear.
“My only interest is what happens at this club. I signed a long-term contract, the way we are improving this club gives me so much joy. I think there is something special growing here.”
Look, there will continue to be alot of rumours about the future of Solskjaer as he is unable to get the results that the club would like, but if there is a change, then the club need to make the right one.
Hasenhuttl is a good coach but he is not good enough to lead United back to the top of the game.
