► Southamp­ton view Hasen­huttl in the Po­chet­tino mould

Sport360 - - Premier League -

Southamp­ton had banked on Mark Hughes suc­ceed­ing at St Mary’s ow­ing to his wealth of Pre­mier League ex­pe­ri­ence. But just one win in 14 matches this sea­son forced the board to dis­miss the for­mer Wales striker. Ap­point­ing Hasen­huttl would rep­re­sent a re­turn to the cal­cu­lated gam­ble ap­proach of draft­ing in a pro­gres­sive for­eign coach yet to test their meth­ods in the Pre­mier League. This worked won­ders with Mauri­cio Po­chet­tino, now soar­ing with Tot­ten­ham, while the blue­print failed with an­other for­mer boss, Mauri­cio Pel­le­grino.
