SOUTHAMPTON, England (AP) -- Southampton has hired former Dutch defender Ronald Koeman as its new manager.

The 51-year-old Koeman says on Twitter that he has "just signed at the great English club" and is "very much looking forward to the new season."

Koeman signed a three-year deal at the Premier League club on Monday. His brother, Erwin, has also joined Southampton as assistant first-team manager.

Koeman replaces Maurico Pochettino, who moved to Premier League rival Tottenham.

Koeman, who has previously managed Ajax and Valencia, left Feyenoord at the end of the 2013-14 Dutch league season.
