The Liverpool supporters have been poking fun at the resident Saints in the Transfer Tavern in the last 24 hours after Guido Carrillo completed his move from Monaco to Southampton.
Southampton have established themselves a rather unwanted reputation as Liverpool’s feeder club in recent years due to the sheer number of players that have departed Saint Mary’s for Anfield. In years gone by, the likes of Adam Lallana, Dejan Lovren, Nathaniel Clyne and most recently Virgil Van Dijk have all left Southampton for Liverpool in big-money deals.
And the Liverpool supporters have rather ironically taken to Twitter to poke fun at Southampton and plot their next raid of the south-coast outfit for Guido Carrillo who arrived at Southampton on Thursday.
Carrillo arrived from Monaco after enduring a disappointing opening to the campaign in which he made just two starts in Ligue 1 under Leonardo Jardim.
The Argentine’s lack of first-team football has been a legitimate cause for concern amongst the Saints faithful, but his modest record this season has not deterred the Liverpool supporters from suggesting he could be on their radar in the future.
Although the comments so far have purely been tongue in cheek, The Reds faithful may well be forced to change their tone somewhat if Carrillo hits the ground running in the Premier League.
Here’s what the Liverpool supporters had to say about Carrillo’s move to Southampton on Twitter…
