Southampton happy for Selles to take managerial role until end of season

Southampton would be happy for interim boss Ruben Selles to take charge until the end of the season, but the club will take their time before making any decision.

The Spaniard is in temporary charge after the Saints sacked Nathan Jones on Sunday just three months into the job.

On Wednesday, talks between former Leeds boss Jesse Marsch and Southampton broke down over becoming the club's new manager.

First-team lead coach Selles has been taking Southampton training and will now be in charge of Saturday's visit to Chelsea, with the Southampton board putting talks about appointing a new manager on hold until after the trip to Stamford Bridge.

The south coast club, who sit bottom of the Premier League, want to focus their energy on the game and give as much support to caretaker boss Selles as possible.
