​Southampton boss Hasenhuttl would have favoured five subs

Southampton boss Ralph Hasenhuttl says he was in favour of allowing five substitutes in the Premier League.

The decision was voted down for a third time by clubs on Thursday.

"We voted for five substitutes, I am always a friend of having more subs," he said. "In Germany I was always positive for it, especially during this [busy] time.

"Having more players on the bench is not really helpful.

"When you have this intense three games a week schedule it is definitely something that could help you."
