Southampton ready to sack Hasenhuttl after Leicester hammering – Mail

Leicester humiliate Southampton

Friday night’s Premier League action saw Southampton playing host to Leicester.

The two sides headed into the to tie in contrasting form, but the end result would still have shocked the majority of fans.

The Foxes would take the lead 10 minutes into the tie via Ben Chilwell.

Southampton then had a man sent off just two minutes later.

But being a man down was no excuse for the utterly shambolic display that ensued from Southampton.

Brendan Rodgers’ side would eventually emerge with an emphatic 9-0 victory.

After putting Southampton to the sword, Leicester are up to 2nd in the Premier League, ahead of Saturday’s action.

Southampton, on the other hand, are sat 18th in the league.

Hasenhuttl to be shown the door?

Southampton have also, as of writing, conceded the most goals in the PL this season, with 25.

And they now have the joint-worst goal difference along with Watford.

After their drubbing at the hands of Leicester, the Daily Mail have run a report about Ralph Hasenhuttl’s future as Saints boss.

It’s not looking good for the Austrian, with the Mail claiming that Southampton are ready to sack him.

The Mail also claims that Hasenhuttl’s position has been under increasing pressure due to Southampton’s poor start to the 2019/20 campaign, and intermediaries connected to the club are said to have been formulating a list of names to potentially replace Hasenhuttl.
