Manchester United have a huge task of signing a top manager at the end of the season, and it’s not proving to be an easy decision, as the club has failed in previous attempts since the departure of Sir Alex Ferguson.

Mauricio Pochettino and Erik ten Hag are the two leading candidates for the job, and Southampton boss Ralph Hasenhuttl has also been linked.

Hasenhuttl has impressed during his time with the Saints, and it’s no surprise he’s being linked with the Old Trafford job.

However, the Austrian is not in a hurry to switch clubs, and has vowed to make a decision based on how he feels in his stomach.

Responding to the Manchester United links and his future at Southampton, Hasenhuttl said: “When this question comes up, I will listen to my stomach and say, ‘what is for the best?’

“I can guarantee that in the past that has never proved me wrong and was always the right decision. There are not a lot of scenarios where I can imagine I go from here.

“I have here everything I need as a manager. I have a fantastic team to work with, an unbelievably good atmosphere in the club, and everybody is backing and supporting me.

“To enjoy it when things are coming together and everything is working fine is the best position to be in as a manager.

“Me and my wife love it here. We love the people, they are so nice and friendly.

“Everywhere I go, even when we did not have good games, they are unbelievable. I cannot imagine having a better job.”
