Fans of Southampton have been reacting to a post on Twitter, in which Saints relayed the comments of Ralph Hasenhuttl following the club’s loss to Tottenham Hotspur on Wednesday.
Speaking after the 2-1 defeat at the Tottenham Hotspur stadium, Hasenhuttl stated his belief that it was “unbelievable” how many chances his side missed in the match, as well as the fact that the loss did not reflect “what the game was about,” although admitted that, in the end, it is about which team is “more clinical” and who are “not so stupid.”
Indeed, despite edging the number of shots on target in the match, a clumsy challenge by Moussa Djenepo in the dying moments of the game resulted in Saints leaving the fixture empty-handed, as the winger’s foul on Harry Winks was deemed by VAR to have occurred inside the penalty area, with Heung-min Son converting from the spot to seal the three points for Spurs.
However, after Southampton relayed the manager’s comments on Twitter, fans of the club flocked to have their say on the matter, with many appearing furious with Hasenhuttl’s assessment of the match, so much so that a great number stated their belief that it is time for the club to sack the Austrian coach.
Should Saints sack Hasenhuttl this summer?
So, what exactly did these Southampton fans have to say in reaction to Ralph Hasenhuttl’s post-match comments?
“You’ve done it, I’m done with football now till Ralph has gone.”
“How long does this go on for!?? Seriously. I remember the Branfoot era. You’re lucky fans aren’t in the ground. Pathetic.”
“Excuse after excuse, enough is enough. It’s the same every game – it’s so predictable.”
“It’s exactly the result we deserved because one more we were an absolute shambles in the 2nd half.”
“Seems to have absolutely no idea about how to turn this run around and his game management is Sunday league level, the club appears technically bankrupt at all levels currently.”
“Your time is up, Ralph – you need to go. We’re all fed up hearing from you and losing too many games.”
“He’s got to go.”
“LEAVE OUR CLUB.”
