Southampton: Fans slam Alex McCarthy

Southampton: Fans slam Alex McCarthy -Premier League

A number of Southampton supporters have slammed goalkeeper Alex McCarthy on social media for his display against Manchester United on Sunday.

Ralph Hasenhuttl named an unchanged team from the side which lost 3-1 to Everton on the opening weekend, sticking with a 4-4-2 system and McCarthy over Fraser Forster.

However, it was the 31-year-old’s performance which had a number of Saints fans talking online, and not for the right reasons.

McCarthy, who is on £50,000-a-week at St Mary’s, was making his 114th appearance for the club since joining back in 2016. He has been a regular under Hasenhuttl but is into the final 12 months of his contract, although reports have suggested he will extend his stay on the south coast.

His display didn’t exactly catch the eye, though, especially following his mistake shortly after the interval, while he also lost the ball on 15 occasions. He misjudged Mason Greenwood’s tame effort in the second half, which saw the visitors equalise.

Saints fans react

Here is what these Saints supporters had to say about McCarthy, with one describing his error-plagued performance as ‘dreadful’.

“McCarthy out our club”

“McCarthy is dreadful”

“Picking McCarthy over Forster is just ridiculous. Does Ralph not see what everyone else does?!”
