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.

New Southampton manager Ralph Hasenhuttl is excited by the "challenge" that awaits him in the Premier League as he prepares to take charge of the team for the first time on Saturday.

The new boss watched his team lose 3-1 to Tottenham at Wembley on Wednesday and quickly noticed one area of concern - the defence.

"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".

51-year-old signed with the saints a three-year agreement. "My goal is to get my name known here in the Premier League".

Pochettino's men were in no mood to let Southampton make it nervy for them and two goals in the opening 10 minutes of the second half killed the game.

Arsenal says the club will talk to the players who were recorded apparently inhaling nitrous oxide in a London nightclub. The North London club sit in fifth in the Premier League table, only behind fourth-placed Chelsea on goal difference.

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.

The engaging Hasenhuttl, who joked that his surname translates into English as "rabbit hutch", fired a word of warning that he will ship out any players not ready for hard work.

Insisting he will look to continue the club's record of promoting from the academy, Hasenhuttl said: "We've just had a look at the players we have now; I want to bring them to their limits".

"The first target is to get out of relegation zone".

"This manager change offers us a fresh start and, very quickly, Ralph emerged as our ideal candidate".

"If you know my kind of football, you will know I'm about training sessions, working on habits". I'm not frightened about it, but the problem at the moment is that we have a lot of games in the next few days. If you have the chance to do that, okay. "It will be a hard-working way", Hasenhuttl said.
