Nathan Jones left fans in disbelief with his interview on Sky Sports

He has been without a club since being sacked by Southampton after only 14 games in charge

Jones was sacked by the Saints after just 14 games with the club at the bottom of the Premier League.

During his short tenure, he caught a lot of attention with his answers in press conferences as he suggested he had “compromised on principles” while at the club.

He also claimed he was one of the best managers in Europe, despite losing most of his games.

When asked if he would have kept Southampton in the Premier League, he told Sky Sports: “That is something that whatever I answer, it is a bit of a loaded question.

“If I had got the results, then I know I would have kept improving the team.

“I believe in the work we do, but it is very difficult to turn around and say that because the last thing I want is another headline.

“But I enjoyed my time and now looking forward to the next challenge.”

On his next job, Jones admitted that he is hoping to have a long-term spot at one club so he can “build”.

He said: “I’m a builder. I like to be at places for a long time.

“Ironically, I believe that our work is deep and not just results based, if you look at my previous club we built something that was not dependent on a manager.

“I don’t like to chop and change, if I do choose a project or one comes for me, then it is one that I have to be able to do good work in.”

When asked if Luton were “massively different” to when he left the club, Jones replied: “No, I don’t at all.

“I think there will be subtle changes, the formation, the personnel and the types of clean sheets. It was just based on structure.”

And fans were left in disbelief at the Welshman’s answers, as one fan sarcastically said: “Wait if he had won games he would have kept them up? The guy’s a genius.”

Another declared: “You don’t get the results. You get the sack. There is no ifs, buts, maybes. You didn’t get the results and you got the sack.”

A third joked: “If my grandmother had wheels she would have been a bike.”

A fourth said: “But he didn’t get results an alienated the fan base with his comments , even Luton don’t miss him.”

A fifth tweeted: “This guy is unreal

Jones was reportedly on a contract worth £1.25m at the Saints and he is set to receive payment for all of the three-and-a-half years he was expected to stay.

It takes the overall spend on Jones to £8.4m.
