Southampton manager Ralph Hasenhüttl has insisted he will be remaining at the club for the next three years of his contract if he has the choice.

The Austrian coach has been a big hit on the south coast since arriving in December 2018 and is currently on 104 games at the club.

That’s the most games he’s ever managed a club for, with his 95 game three-year spell at Ingolstadt his previous highest tally.

If things remain on the right track, he’s set to remain at Southampton until 2024, having signed a new four-year deal at the club in June last year.

Whether he sees out that deal remains to be seen, with the 53-year-old having been linked to both Chelsea and Manchester United earlier this season.

It seems he has every intention to ignore such rumours, though, and see out his commitment to the Saints if his latest comments are to be believed.

“I’m planning another three years at Southampton because I still have a three-year contract,” he told Sky Sport Austria.

“At the moment, there are not many scenarios at the moment where I can imagine ending this.

“For me, the Premier League feels like a whole year in the Champions League.

“When you see our games, you play at Manchester City on a Wednesday evening – those are games some would be happy about.

“It’s a lot of fun as a manager because you can and must always assert yourself at the level.”
