Ralph Hasenhuttl, the new Southampton manager, says his training methods will be “mind-blowing” for the players, as he looks to make his mark on the Premier League.
The Austrian faced the press for the first time on Thursday since being appointed, and gave a glimpse of the character that propelled his RB Leipzig team to Champions League football after just one season in the Bundesliga.
Hasenhuttl, 51, said implementing his intense training approach and mindset immediately at Southampton was how he intended to improve results.
“We have to try. The main goal at the moment is not to overload them [before Cardiff on Saturday], but the next two weeks we have about six training sessions and there we have a lot of time to work with their tactical basics, but also with their mind.
“We will have a lot of video sessions and it will get mind-blowing for the guys. The training sessions are forcing you to be really concentrated and therefore I want them to discuss it, for them to come to me. It is all about input, it’s about mindset. There will be no rest in the next weeks, I can guarantee you.”
