Ask any Saints fan "whats the best thing about Austria?" and there will probably only be one answer - Ralph Hasenhüttl! The 53-year-old Austrian has become a firm fans favourite at St. Mary's, ever since he arrived in December 2018.
While Hasenhüttl is renowned for his passion, commitment and charisma off the pitch, its ultimately results on it that have made him so popular.
"Ralphampton FC", as the Club is now known in some circles, ended the 2019-20 season on the crest of a wave, winning 5 and drawing 3 of the final 9 'post-lockdown' Premier League fixtures.
So, ahead of the new season starting, Total Saints were very grateful to be given exclusive access to Hasenhüttl.
During a fairly brief catch-up, the conversation covered Ralph's hopes for 2020/21, his new 4-year deal, James Ward-Prowse' importance to the team and also........cows and mountains!
While the Total Saints TSP patrons (via Patreon) have been enjoying early access to the interview, non-patrons will have to wait until TSP128 is released (on Monday 14th September).
