Southampton in 'total disarray' amid source's manager update - pundit

Southampton are in “total disarray” after sacking manager Ralph Hasenhuttl on Monday (7 November).

That is according to Spurs expert John Wenham, who regularly breaks news about the club on his Lilywhite Rose social media channels.

Hasenhuttl, 55, was sacked on the back of a 4-1 defeat to Newcastle United on Sunday (6 November) with the Saints dropping into the relegation zone as a result.

The Saints have only won four of their 14 games this season.

Later on Monday, sources told Football Insider that the Saints are confident of appointing Luton Town boss Nathan Jones as their new manager in the next 48 hours.

Wenham insists Southampton are in real danger of being relegated due to the club’s poor recruitment and off-pitch turbulence.

“So Southampton have sacked Hassenhuttl, I get the impression they were going to sack him during the World Cup anyway,” Wenham told Football Insider correspondent Ben Wild.

“They are in total disarray. They brought in Joe Shields in the summer, he has already jumped ship to join Chelsea so I fully expect them to come in for Lavia in January.

“The manager has now been sacked. The whole business in the summer was to sign promising youngsters and if they go down then that whole strategy would have failed.

“There are a few players there who aren’t good enough. Bazunu is a player with huge potential but right now he should be on loan in the Championship.

“I do not think he is good enough to be starting week in week out in the Premier League.

“There is a lot of work for Southampton to do if they are to stay in the Premier League.”

Southampton’s last Premier League before the World Cup comes against Liverpool on Saturday (12 November).

Before that, they face Sheffield Wednesday in the EFL Cup on Wednesday (9 November).
