Southampton manager Ralph Hasenhuttl has reportedly been sacked after a disappointing start to the season.
Southampton currently find themselves in the relegation zone after a string of poor results, most recently against Newcastle on Sunday.
Hasenhuttl has survived two separate nine-goal thrashings against Leicester and Manchester United with Southampton showing immense faith in the Austrian manager.
However, Hasenhuttl’s time as Southampton manager could be over, with The Athletic reporting that the club have decided to part ways ahead of their next game against Liverpool or during the World Cup break.

With the news coming on Sunday night, it will be interesting to see if Southampton decide to take the earlier option of sacking Hasenhuttl as soon as possible, as players are likely to find out about the situation on social media.
If the players know that the coach is going to be fired, that could affect their performance.
The report claims that the search for Southampton’s next manager is underway, with the World Cup break allowing the club to spend a little more time than usual to find the next man to sit on the bench.
