Southampton fired Ralph Hasenhuttl following Sunday’s 4-1 loss to Newcastle.
The Austrian joins Scott Parker, Thomas Tuchel, Bruno Lage, and Steven Gerrard as the sixth head coach to be let go after only three months of the season.
Due to his team’s poor performance against the Newcastle Magpies, which put them in 18th place in the league and the relegation zone, the 55-year-old manager was fired. He appeared to be considering leaving during the month of October.
Although the young Southampton team had its flashes of brilliance and undoubtedly should have scored early on, they were unsure of themselves and lacked experience for the rest of the game.
Newcastle was able to destroy the opposition despite not fielding its entire roster, scoring four or more goals for the fourth time in seven games.
Hasenhuttl’s dismissal from the Saints has not been formally announced, but according to Dan Sheldon of The Athletic, the club decided to hunt for a replacement during the World Cup break.
