Southampton: Fans slam Ibrahima Diallo display

Southampton: Fans slam Ibrahima Diallo display - Southampton News

Many Southampton fans were criticial of the display of Ibrahima Diallo despite their 2-0 win at Sheffield United in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon.

A James Ward-Prowse penalty and a spectacular effort from Che Adams were enough to give the St Mary’s faithful all three points away at Chris Wilder’s team, but while there were some very good performances in a Saints shirt on the day, Diallo’s flattered to deceive for several supporters.

Should Southampton start Diallo?

Yes

Yes

No

No

The central midfielder lost out on four of his duels and also failed to make a single interception, while losing possession of the ball no fewer than 11 times in the game, earning him a quite measly 6.8 overall rating on Sofascore, the second-worst out of any of his teammates to have started the match.

Southampton fan reaction to Diallo display

These Saints fans slammed his performance on Twitter, with one fan even going as far to claim that the 21-year-old Frenchman was ‘dreadful’:
