Ralph Hasenhuttl responds to Man Utd manager's job speculation

Southampton boss Ralph Hasenhuttl has brushed aside talk that he could be the next permanent manager of Manchester United.

The Saints fought back from a goal down to earn a deserved 1-1 draw at Old Trafford last Saturday, just days after earning a huge 3-2 win at Tottenham.

Since then, pundits and media members have suggested that Hasenhuttl would be the perfect man to lead United forward from next season.

Southampton defender Jan Bednarek recently revealed that he thinks his current manager should be in charge of one of 'the biggest teams in the world', while Red Devils interim boss Ralf Rangnick has previously praised the Austrian for the clear identity that his teams have.

But Hasenhuttl, who has suggested that he could retire once he eventually ends his stint at St Mary's, has played down talk of him taking the reins at United.

"This is not in my mind, and also not the things that are interesting me," he said ahead of this weekend's clash with Everton.

"I don’t want to speak about my future every week, last week we spoke about something different, and this week we shall speak about our game, what we have now against Everton.

"This is more interesting for me, and my whole energy and my whole focus is on this game, and everything else, I’ll leave it to you [the media]."
