Southampton manager Ralph Hasenhuttl is gearing up for a “strange” encounter with Dean Smith for the second time in as many games on Saturday.
Saints’ most recent game was a 1-0 victory against Aston Villa a fortnight ago, after which Smith was fired as manager and replaced by Norwich’s new head coach.
Southampton will be Smith’s first opponents in the Carrow Road dugout, followed by another meeting with Hasenhuttl.
“It’s a little bit strange preparing for this game, because it’s always difficult when an opponent changes the manager, and you don’t have as much information as normal,” said the Austrian.
