TheThe dismissal of Ralph Hasenhuttl was accompanied by surprising news: The appointment of the Spaniard Ruben Celes (Valencia, 6-16-1983) as temporary coach of the “Saints”.
Celes, in case he is on the bench against Liverpool, He will become the 12th Spanish coach to be prime minister. I was going to do it a few hours before Julen Lopetegui’s premiere with Wolverhampton.

Hasenhüttl’s successor landed in St. Mary this summer from Copenhagen, who, since working as an assistant to Jens Thorup, has just declared himself the champion of Denmark. In fact, the “saints” had to pay money for his transportation.
“It surprised me a little bit, but it’s not unusual for you to have the opportunity to work in the Premier League. I am grateful for the understanding Copenhagen has shown. It wasn’t what they wanted, but they acted like gentlemen to come to an agreement and let me enjoy this experience,” Seles confirmed in his farewell.

His passing left a bittersweet taste for Peter Christiansen, sporting director of ‘FCK’: “Robin has done a very good job and is a talented coach. It is normal for others to notice. We have done our best to keep you here, But we were able to achieve a very good financial agreement to cover the wound of his departure.”
We did everything we could to keep him here, but we came to a very good financial agreement to cover the wound of his passing.
Most of Siles’ career, Except for his stint as coach of Juvenil B from Valencia and a short trip as a physical coach for Villarreal Youth Academy, It was developed abroad.In 2008 he left as a physical trainer for Quique Hernández in Aris.
In 2011, he returned to Ares, but is now an assistant coach. This major auxiliary work was also carried out in Neftchi Baku (2012-14), Qarabag (2015-2017), Aarhus (2018-20) and finally Copenhagen (2021-22). Additionally, he was chief analyst at Stromsgodset in 2015, coinciding with the Martin Odegaard explosion.
Now comes the chance to manage Southampton, arriving as Hassenhütl’s ‘right hand’: “It’s exciting for me to be working in one of the best moments in the Premier League, the best league in the world, with a great coach like Ralph.”
