First Team Assistant Coach Kelvin Davis has sung the praises of Saints' new manager Ralph Hasenhüttl whose two-and-a-half reign begins this morning.

Davis took charge of Southampton against Tottenham at Wembley on Tuesday night and saw enough from the performance to suggest that Hasenhüttl will have plenty with which to work in the coming months.

As for the Austrian himself, the former Saints goalkeeper was left impressed by what he has already seen. 

“The lads showed that they are committed and they are good technical players who want to play with the ball on the ground.

“I met with Ralph before the Spurs game and he is a guy that hits you with his stature and knowledge. He is very concise and confident and there is no doubt in the way that he wants to play football. To me, he seems a great fit for this football club.

“Ultimately, a manager of his calibre joining us shows his commitment to what he believes he can achieve here.

“We know the size of the Cardiff game now and I’m sure if we create the same number of chances we did tonight then that will be enough to win.”
