Wesley Hoedt was one of a couple of players Ralph Hasenhuttl decided to offload from his Southampton squad in the winter.
The defender joined Celta de Vigo on loan until the end of the season, with the La Liga outfit believed to have the option of turning his move into a permanent stay.
Despite being a regular for Mark Hughes, the Dutch international had been frozen out of the team following the new manager’s arrival and it appears he did not have any chance of forcing his way into the first-team.
Speaking to La Voz de Galicia, via Sport Witness, Hoedt explained that Hasenhuttl made it very clear that he ‘did not like’ him and ‘did not want’ him at the club.
“I was playing every game, but there was a change of coach and the new one made it very clear to me that he didn’t like me, that he didn’t want me.”
Hasenhuttl had looked to make a number of changes at Southampton and they appear to have worked in his favour recently.
Hoedt had been a mainstay under Hughes, however, things clearly were not working as The Saints continued to ship a number of goals on a regular occasion.
The Dutchman will be hoping the move to Celta de Vigo will go as well as possible, as it does not appear as though he will get a chance to play at the St. Mary’s Stadium in the future.
