Southampton Football Club has confirmed it has appointed Ralph Hasenhüttl as its new First Team Manager.
Hasenhüttl has agreed a two-and-a-half year deal with the club and will take over on Thursday.
The 51-year-old will be supported by existing First Team Assistant Coach Kelvin Davis, Head of Goalkeeping Dave Watson and Head of Sports Science Alek Gross.
It follows on from the sacking of Mark Hughes on Monday.
Hasenhüttl gained a reputation in Germany for developing the young players within his squads.
Most recently, he led RB Leipzig to the Europa League quarter-finals, having finished runners-up in the Bundesliga in his first season in charge.
