Southampton: Fans on Twitter look forward to the future with Matt Crocker back involved

Yesterday, Southampton confirmed the appointment of Matt Crocker as the club’s director of football operations as they look to get their house in order behind the scenes. 

Previously working as the FA’s head of development after leaving his role as the Saints’ academy director a number of years ago, Crocker was involved in the youth set-up on the south coast during a glorious period for the club in that respect, with the likes of Gareth Bale, Theo Walcott and Adam Lallana establishing themselves as prospects before going on to reach the highest levels of the game.

While the Daily Echo did report that Crocker was unlikely to be a direct replacement for the recently-departed Ross Wilson the announcement on Twitter yesterday saw a lot of fans react with delight. During what has been a difficult campaign for Ralph Hasenhüttl with his side in the bottom three, fans on Twitter were excited for the future with Crocker due to take up his new job in 2020.
