Temporary manager Ruben Selles aspires to handle Southampton permanently

Ruben Selles, Southampton’s interim manager, has stated his desire to take over as the team’s next permanent manager.

Following Saturday’s loss to 10-man Wolves, manager Nathan Jones was fired, and the 39-year-old Spaniard was named as the team’s interim manager.

Selles made his remarks after Southampton dropped their interest in hiring former Leeds manager Jesse Marsch when negotiations stalled.

For the past four years, he remarked, “I’ve felt prepared to be the best.”

Southampton has only won four of their 22 games, and as a result, they are currently last in the Premier League.

Selles will take over as the club’s manager for the first time on Saturday when they take on Chelsea at Stamford Bridge. Selles has coaching experience in Greece, Azerbaijan, and Denmark.

He continued, “I have played football at every level, not just in England but around the world.

“I am extremely proud of what I accomplished and experienced. I believe it to be a natural thing for me because I have a lot of personal experience and coaching hours.

“I would have responded, “Yes, I am as capable to accomplish it as anyone,” if you had asked me three or four months ago. Yet I did not make that choice.

The club’s administrators will make the decision, but I would be more than pleased to take the position, of course.
