Southampton appoint Ruben Selles as manager until the end of the season

SOUTHAMPTON, England (AP) — Southampton have hired Ruben Sells as manager until the end of the Premier League season, the relegation-threatened club said Friday.

The 39-year-old Spaniard led Southampton to a 1-0 win over Chelsea last Saturday in his first league game in charge as caretaker manager following the sacking of Nathan Jones.

Seles appeared publicly for the job last week, saying he was “as capable as anyone else to do it” amid reports the club were in talks with former Leeds manager Jesse Marsh.

Southampton remain in last place ahead of Saturday’s crucial game at Leeds. Leeds finish next and are just one point above Southampton.

Sels, who is expected to hold a pre-match press conference later on Friday, has joined Southampton as assistant to Ralph Hasenhuttl.

Selles was in charge for an English League Cup match in November after Hassenhuttl was sacked. Jones was then appointed but Southampton lost seven of their eight league games under him.
