Southampton: Fans do not have time for Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg’s emotional apology

Southampton fans have lambasted captain Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg after he gave an ’emotional’ apology to the club’s fans.

The Danish midfielder faced the press after his side’s embarrassing 9-0 home loss to Leicester City, and it wasn’t particularly easy on the eye.

Southampton matched the record for the biggest ever Premier League loss and went one better with the remarkable achievement of having the biggest ever home loss in the top-tier of English football, which started 131 years ago.

The skipper said that if he spoke his mind then it wouldn’t go down particularly well, as he gave a timid interview where he apologised to the fans and took responsibility for the defeat.

Now past the quarter stage in the league, the loss has sent Saints into the relegation spots. Two hat-tricks were scored from both Jamie Vardy and Ayoze Perez as a toothless Southampton succumbed to every bit of pressure the Foxes gave.

Hasenhuttl and Hojbjerg will now have a huge job to try and lift the spirits of the squad, who are bound to be hurting today after such an embarrassment.

Despite the genuine and heartfelt apology, many Southampton fans weren’t bothered and criticised the team and the player.

Here are some of the fans’ responses below…
