The Austrian has been promoted as follower to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at Old Trafford.
Ralph Hasenhuttl will continue to concentrate on attempting to assist Southampton attain their own “big targets” instead of stress over ideas he might be a future Manchester United manager.
The Austrian has directed Saints into the leading 6, and briefly saw them at the top in the center of a 7-match unbeaten Premier League run.
Hasenhuttl, 53, has been promoted as a prospective follower to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at Old Trafford ought to United seek to make a modification in the dugout.
The former RB Leipzig boss signed a new four-year deal at St. Mary’s Arena during the summer, and preserves he is very much devoted to the Southampton project.
Asked if he desired handle a club like Manchester United one day, Hasenhuttl stated: “No, a club of Man Utd (standing) not, however perhaps a Champions League club or a Europa League club.
” However that does not indicate that I can not handle this club and go there (into Europe). I have big, big targets with this club here.
” To speak of the international (European) areas in the Premier League, it is not truly valuable due to the fact that when you speak of the names you are taking on, I do not need to inform you, there are 6 areas typically and you can defend the seventh one.
” It’s not truly a target you can seriously take, however you never ever understand.
Southampton host United on Sunday, and Hasenhuttl anticipates ongoing development.
“At the moment we have a good average of points. We have nearly 2.0 points average, this is definitely an average of points with which you can reach international (European) spots,” he stated.
“Our goal is to keep this average of points as high as possible.”
United get to St Mary’s on the back of a midweek 4-1 Champions League win over Istanbul Basaksehir and have actually continued to impress far from home in the Premier League, winning all of their fixtures up until now.
Nonetheless, with his side sitting 10th, albeit with a match still in hand, Solskjaer continues to face concerns over the instructions of his team.
Hasenhuttl, however, feels just taking a look at United’s league position does not inform the entire story.
“When you are in 10th position in the table and not top of the table, so (people will say) you don’t do a good job,” the Saints boss stated.
” It (speculation) is regular, however when you look a bit deeper, and see them playing.
” I have actually seen some very good tactical games from them where they are very, very well organised.
” However often it’s not constant enough in somegames There are beats, such as Tottenham at home, where you have a very bad day.
” When you do this as at Manchester United, it is regular you get criticism.
” This is the job you need to do there. I understand this situation, how it is where wins are regular and draws are a catastrophe.
” It was almost the exact same in Leipzig. You manage this.
“I am sure he does it well and he is more robust than people outside think he is.”
Hasenhuttl is himself not unsusceptible to being under the spotlight, with his side trashed 9-0 at home by Leicester last October.
The Austrian feels normally English clubs do show perseverance with their supervisors and thinks the United board will have the “bigger picture” in mind.
“Don’t forget if you sack a manager, you are responsible for getting a better manager as the new one,” stated Hasenhuttl, who got to Southampton in December 2018 with the club battling to remain in the Premier League.
“There are no guarantees that it will be (that way). They know what they have to do and I wish them all the best.”
