Ralph Hasenhüttl BiographyLast updated 18 Dec 2018
Former clubs: SpVgg Unterhaching, VfR Aalen, FC Ingolstadt, RB Leipzig
Ralph Hasenhüttl arrived at Southampton in December 2018, taking over as First Team Manager, and bringing with him a burgeoning reputation crafted in Germany.
Born in Graz, Austria, in August 1967, Hasenhüttl enjoyed a successful career as a centre-forward, making more than 400 league appearances and earning eight caps for his country.
It was as a coach where he really began to build his name.
Hasenhüttl began from the bottom rung in Germany, with Unterhaching, a 3.Bundesliga outfit.
Taking over in late 2007, he produced a record of 40 wins and 20 draws from 88 games through to leaving in 2010.
His next opportunity would come at another third-tier outfit in Germany, VfR Aalen, and it was here where Hasenhüttl really began to come to prominence.
Taking over in January 2011, he helped steer the side to safety from a precarious league position, before building a team that went on to win promotion to 2.Bundesliga in the 2011/12 campaign, with Hasenhüttl then guiding the squad to a top-half finish in their first season at the higher level.
His next destination would be FC Ingolstadt, another club in Germany’s second division, where he would enjoy an incredibly successful spell lasting just under three years.
Hasenhüttl’s time in charge was transformative for Ingolstadt, who went from the bottom of 2.Bundesliga to promotion as champions in 2014/15 and then a comfortable, 11th-placed finish in their first campaign in the top flight.
The summer of 2016 would then mark the moment that Hasenhüttl went to the next level in his managerial career, as he was appointed boss of newly-promoted Bundesliga side RB Leipzig, with previous coach Ralf Rangnick – often credited as one of the chief architects of the high-intensity pressing game – having taken on the full-time role of sporting director at the club.
Leipzig, under their new coach, were a revelation.
A sign of what was to come appeared in only their second league game of the season, as they earned a surprise 1-0 home win over Thomas Tuchel’s Borussia Dortmund, before demolishing Hamburg 4-0 away from home in their next match.
It would be December before Leipzig lost a game, with a run of eight consecutive Bundesliga victories the highlight.
Their success was built on a recipe of intense pressing of the opposition when they had the ball, laying traps and provoking errors, before looking to counter swiftly and overload.
It was an approach that so many other sides struggled to come to grips with.
In the end, Carlo Ancelotti’s Bayern Munich always remained out of touch at the very top, but Leipzig barely faltered, finishing as runners-up and earning a Champions League spot.
With a European campaign to embark upon – Leipzig finished third in their Champions League group, before making the quarter-finals of the Europa League – their next campaign was not quite as electric, but they still earned a top-six finish in the top-flight, before Hasenhüttl decided the time was right to step away.
His break would not last too long, though, moving to the Premier League in late 2018 to take over at St Mary’s.
