‘Please two foot Pellegrino’ – Southampton fans react as much-loved star takes to Twitter

Southampton fans here in the Tavern are losing patience with their side, as another match flies by without securing the all important three points. 

St Mary’s is laying witness to one of the poorest runs of form that the Saints have ever been a part of on the south coast, as Mauricio Pellegrino continues to drag the club into the depths of despair. Indeed, Wednesday night produced 1-1 draw at home to fellow relegation scrappers Brighton and Hove Albion, in a game that saw the Saints resume their normal lacklustre ways with a second-half equaliser saving the day. Currently sitting in the bottom three with the end of the season vastly approaching, failing to spend sufficient amounts of the Virgil Van Dijk deal on reinforcements may just hamper their progress.

And, with all the recent controversy surrounding Southampton’s lack of intent to buy, and producing one of their worst starts to a Premier League season in history, Lemina took to his personal Twitter account to display his sorrow at the hole they currently find themselves in as he states that he’ll never give up on the cause.

Following the post, fans were quick to praise the midfielder for his motivational words, as they hope to see him starting more games for the Saints for the remainder of the season.

So without further ado, here’s a look at exactly the sort of reaction that fans gave off on social media…
