Southampton striker Che Adams will miss Saturday’s game with Leeds United on Saturday afternoon, Ralph Hasenhuttl confirmed.
And, as to be expected, a number of Saints fans were quick to give their thoughts to the confirmed news on social media.
Adams featured for Scotland during the international break but picked up a muscle problem in the first of two World Cup qualifiers against Israel.
The 25-year-old played 68 minutes before being forced off and was sent home, missing the game against the Faroe Islands as a result.
Hasenhuttl revealed in his pre-match press conference that Adams would miss the game at St Mary’s against Marcelo Bielsa’s side, but was hopeful the forward won’t be out long term.
Who should start with Adams out?

Southampton shared the news regarding Adams on their official Twitter page on Thursday. This is what these Saints fans had to say in reply, with many excited and hoping Broja will get the nod.
