Southampton assistant manager Kelvin Davis insists newly appointed manager Ralph Hassenhuttl is good fit for the club.

Davis took charge of Southampton’s game against Tottenham Hotspur on Wednesday night and saw enough from the team’s display to suggest that incoming manager, Ralph Hasenhüttl will have plenty with which to work in the coming months.

As for the former RB Leipzig boss, Davis 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,” the former Southampton goalkeeper said, according to the club’s official website.

“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.”
