Southampton host Manchester United this weekend, looking to extend their unbeaten Premier League run to eight games.
The two sides drew both their meetings last season, with Michael Obafemi snatching a stoppage time winner last time out.
In his pre-match press conference, Ralph Hasenhuttl was asked about the prospect of managing United.
Hampshire Live mentioned Hasenhuttl as a potential future United boss – one day – but he dealt with the question with a straight bat.
“It’s not really something that I listen to,” said Hasenhuttl. “I don’t read any social media or any other news.
“I am only interested in what happens at this club at the moment. I signed a long-term contract and this is a long-term project for me.
“We are improving this club, every part of the club and that’s something which gives me so much joy every day. I think there’s something special here growing at the moment and that’s why I want to stay here.”
Hasenhuttl was unequivocal and that should be music to the ears of Southampton fans.
Hasenhuttl has done a sensational job at St Mary’s, restoring the identity of a club which had lost its way.
They sit five places and four points above United ahead of the weekend’s fixtures.
Hasenhuttl has brought a clear style of play to Southampton, which is something Ole Gunnar Solskjaer hasn’t been able to establish on a consistent basis.
Sunday provides him with another chance to show why he feels he’s onto such a good thing on the south coast.
