Southampton boss Ralph Hasenhuttl has been linked with a move to become Manchester United’s next manager.

Mauricio Pochettino and Erik ten Hag are the two leading candidates for the job at Old Trafford, but Southampton boss Ralph Hasenhuttl has also been thrown into the mix.

The Saints boss has now claimed that he loves his job at Southampton even though he’d also love a job at a bigger club.

But then, the 54-year-old manager sounded contented as he said:

“You have to be very clear what you want in your life – and only then can you be happy with what you have.

“Different challenges are also interesting, no question. But I’m managing in the best league in the world, what more can you expect from a manager?

“I play against the best managers and best teams in the world and can compete with a young team.

“I also like to watch the Champions League during the week. But sometimes it’s easier to sit at home on the sofa, watch it relaxed and concentrate on the game at the weekend against one of these teams than to play (in it) yourself.

“This doesn’t mean I’m not looking to be successful. I’m also driven for success, but it’s important that you also know what you really want.”
