Southampton boss Hasenhuttl: Behaviour of Big Six unacceptable

Southampton boss Ralph Hasenhuttl has slammed Super League breakaway plans.

Hasenhuttl is particularly unimpressed by the underhanded behaviour of the clubs involved.

Discussing the prospect of the new competition, Saints boss Hasenhuttl said: "It does absolutely worry me. But I must say that the message from the Premier League was a very clear one and I 100 per cent agree with what they say about this.

"This is for me absolutely unacceptable what is going on behind the scenes and I think nobody wants it. Not even the fans of the clubs who want to go there want it, so hopefully we will find the right steps to not let it happen."

Asked why he feels it is unacceptable, Hasenhuttl added: "Because they know there were a lot of powers of negotiation inside the Premier League going on about the future and they were not one time speaking about this Super League.

"Suddenly it crops up and it means that there were some negotiations in behind in the background and this is something which is for me unacceptable."
