Southampton are reportedly set to announce Jesse Marsch as their new manager today, according to TalkSport. 

Following their latest Premier League defeat, the south coast club sacked Nathan Jones just three months after they appointed him as Ralph Hasenhuttl’s replacement.

Now though, it has been revealed that the wait could soon be over for the Saints to appoint their latest head coach.

In a Twitter post from the official TalkSport account on Tuesday night, they had this to say on the matter:

The post said: “Southampton expect to appoint Jesse Marsch as their new manager tomorrow, talkSPORT understands.”

How many times did Wesley Hoedt feature in an underwhelming Saints stay?

The 49-year-old was sacked by Leeds United earlier this month after taking charge of the West Yorkshire club back in February last year.

Prior to that, the manager had stints with RB Leipzig and RB Salzburg.

During his time at Elland Road, the American overlooked 37 matches in total across all competitions, winning 11, drawing 10 and losing 16.

Despite his mixed bag of results, Marsch still managed to keep Leeds in the Premier League at the end of last season with a dramatic 2-1 win over Brentford away from home on the final day of the campaign.

Are you confident Jesse Marsch is the right manager for Southampton?





Bearing in mind how Southampton currently find themselves at the bottom of the Premier League table with just 15 points on the board from 22 games, it’s clear that the former Leeds boss will need to do the same thing again this time around for the Saints.

Moving forward, with Marsch looking likely to be the one to take Southampton forward, it’s safe to say that he has a big job ahead of him if he wants to keep them in the top flight.

In terms of what his first objective could be, the fact that only Bournemouth (44) have conceded more goals in the league this season than the Saints (40) suggests that their defence needs some serious attention and fixing if they want to start picking up some much-needed points.
