Many Southampton fans have been buzzing at a video involving Ralph Hasenhuttl that recently emerged on social media.
Saints boss Hasenhuttl was recently asked about Danny Ings’ situation at the club’s recent press conference. He was asked about suggestions regarding the reports which suggested that the Englishman wants to play for a Champions League club in the future.
Did you love Hasenhuttl's response?
To this, Hasenhuttl replied that he is confident of keeping Ings at St. Mary’s in the summer transfer window. He also said that if Ings wants to play Champions League football, he should score 15 or 20 goals more for the Saints and help them potentially qualify for Europe.
The Athletic have stated that contract negotiations for Ings’ new deal are at a delicate stage right now, but wages aren’t an issue for him. He feels that if he signs a new contract, it would rule out the possibility of a Champions League side paying a fee what Southampton would deem acceptable. So the Englishman wants a suitable release clause to be inserted.
They have also reported that the longer the negotiations carry on, it will look increasingly unlikely that he extends his contract. He isn’t agitating for a move and he isn’t forcing his way out either.
A video involving Hasenhuttl’s comments was relayed on Twitter recently. Many Saints fans gave their opinion about the Southampton manager.
What did Southampton fans make of this Hasenhuttl video?
“Looks so proud of his answer.”
“Gotta love him.”
“Love it from the boss.”
“They said you couldn’t love Ralph anymore…”
“Honestly love this man.”
“Reporter: ”Danny wants to play Champions League football?” Ralph: “Yeah sure, he only needs to score 10-15 more goals for us, it’s possible” LOVE HIM”
