Luton manager Nathan Jones has been linked with the Southampton job after leading the Championship side to a play-off final last season.

Luton has given permission to Jones to speak with Southampton about the idea of becoming the new manager before the World Cup begins.

In 2019, Jones was Stoke City’s manager. It was unimpressive tenure for him, where he won seven matches in 38 games. He lasted for only ten months before he was kicked out.

Afterward, things turn around for his managerial career. In the 2021–22 season, Jones was named the Championship Manager of the Year.

So far in the 2022-2023 season, Southampton have won three matches out of 14 Premier League matches and currently sit in the 18th position after losing 4-1 to Newcastle.

During his time at St. Mary’s, Hasenhuttl managed to keep the club out of relegation trouble.

Even after suffering a 9-0 defeat to Manchester United and Leicester City, Southampton still showed faith in the Austria manager.

Unfortunately, things turned against him on and off the pitch in recent times. A number of first team players have spoken against the treatment of the manager on the training ground, and it was rumored he lost the dressing room and failed to communicate properly with his players.


Frustration around the squad has been brewing since last season.

Ralph Hasenhuttl has played important roles over the last four seasons since he was appointed to replace Mark Hughes in December 2019.

The manager was able to get good results, bring in young players, and, with a limited budget, stop Southampton from being relegated.

Hasenhuttl also had the best winning rate at the club; he departs with a record of 60 wins from 173 games, a 35 percent win ratio.

Other managers linked to the job are River Plate manager Marcelo Gallardo, Sean Dyche, and Bodo/Glimt head coach Kjetil Knutsen.

Another potential replacement is Manchester City assistant manager Enzo Maresca.
