Ralph Hasenhuttl loses three members of his coaching staff after Southampton’s dismal end to the season as the club prepare for a summer reshuffle


Southampton boss Ralph Hasenhuttl has lost much of his behind-the-scenes staff with Kelvin Davis, Craig Fleming and Dave Watson leaving the club.

It was a disappointing season for the Saints, who finished 15th in the Premier League, the lowest they have finished in three years.

talkSPORT reported earlier that new owners Sport Republic believe Hasenhuttl having a solid No. 2 to fall back on could help revive their fortunes.

Hasenhuttl has never properly replaced former assistant Danny Rohl, who stepped down in 2019, and hasn’t been particularly close with any of the other support staff.

A source even told talkSPORT that the rest of the coaching staff stay out of the technical area on match days at the Austrian’s request.

And now there has been a reshuffle of Hasenhuttl’s backroom team, with the departure of assistants Davis, Fleming and Watson.

It is unclear who will replace the trio.

A club statement read: “The club would like to express their sincere thanks to each of the coaches for their efforts throughout their time at Southampton in various capacities.
