Joe Aribo gets new manager as Southampton appoints Nathan Jones

Southampton midfielder Joe Aribo will now report to Nathan Jones, who has been anointed the club’s new manager.

Jones has signed a three-and-a-half-year contract to take over for Ralph Hasenhuttl.

He has left Luton to take over as manager of the Saints. And sat through their Carabao Cup penalty shootout win over Sheffield Wednesday.

Jones will be joined by coaches Chris Cohen and Alan Sheehan. And Sky Sports News understands a compensation package of around £2.5m will be paid to the Championship club.




His first match in charge is at home to Liverpool on Saturday (kick-off 3pm) in Southampton’s last fixture before the World Cup.

Jones said: “I’m really proud to be given this opportunity. I know a lot about the club from back in the days of The Dell. To coming here to St Mary’s, and it’s a wonderful football club.

“A lot of my family are Southampton fans, which doesn’t half help, and I feel really, really proud to be given the opportunity, and I’m really looking forward to getting started.

“Obviously, I wanted to manage in the Premier League. I’ve dreamt of that since I’ve become a coach or a manager, but this club in particular – because of how it’s run. Because of the structure, because of how they look deeper than just results – really appeals to me.”
