Jesse Marsch set to replace Nathan Jones to become the Manager (Head Coach) of Southampton FC. Southampton announced that they had parted ways with head coach Nathan Jones, just 14 league games after appointing him as the successor to Ralph Hasenhüttl. The news flashed after the Saints’ 2-1 loss to Wolves, which put them at the bottom of the English Premier League standings. Ruben Selles is in charge as head coach for the club for short period. Jesse Marsch, a former Leeds manager, is likely to take over Jones permanently.
The announcement is surprise considering the club’s prior history of giving managers time to test out new strategies at St. Mary’s Stadium, despite the team’s dismal performance. Despite having a similar or higher points per game record than some of his predecessors, Jones had significantly less playing time than Hasenhüttl himself, Mark Hughes, and Mauricio Pellegrino.
The south coast club, on the other hand, don’t have much time to lick their wounds after a disappointing managerial spell. As a result they are in stiff to quickly appoint a new manager who can guide the club back up the Premier League table. Unfortunately, this seems to be a challenging challenge considering Marsch’s performance history at Elland Road, where he was fired just one week ago.
