They call for fresh direction in the middle of a season because they are desperate.There were familiar flaws for Hasenhuttl to digest from his lofty perch at Wembley, having been confirmed as Mark Hughes's successor in the morning, namely defensive timidity and looseness and, at the other end, a lack of any discernible goal threat until the game was over at 3-0 to Tottenham.

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

Asked about his nickname and comparisons with Klopp, Hasenhuttl replied: "I have heard about it".

Saturday's game between Cardiff and Southampton will be both teams third game in a week. "I want to be my own character".

"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".

"I had a few successful years in Germany and was thinking about my next step, and it challenged me to stand in front of a new team with a new language".

Hasenhuttl revealed there was no contact from Arsenal in the summer after Arsene Wenger's departure, contrary to reports. The duo has combined for six of the club's 14 goals.

It's an fantastic career. "I hope I have more games like this in my career but I will not take it". "But I will not accept". It's exceptional, and the boys deserve all the credit for that because they fight for each yard".


The Austrian coach signed a two-and-a-half-year contract with the struggling Saints to replace Mark Hughes, who was sacked on Monday with the club sitting in the relegation zone.

He said: 'I want to put my footsteps in the snow here.

Hasenhuttl will be looking to bring Leipzig's form from his time in charge to the club, but he could become part of an unwanted list on Saturday afternoon.

"It's a bit back to the roots for me, past year I had a fantastic Champions League team, we were on a very high technical level, the step is not the easiest one but I never want it easy in my life".

"I've just been working hard on the training field to get myself injury free".

Chairman Ralph Krueger, a fellow German speaker, has promised Hasenhuttl support in the window, but the Saints boss believes turning to the market is not always the best philosophy.
