Djenepo receives St Mary’s plaudits
“This is Djenepo’s best game for #SaintsFC in months and months.”
“#saintsfc no matter what the outcome Djenepo has had his best game in red and white.”
“How good has Djenepo been today, working hard, winning possession, protecting his unfamiliar RB? (I’ll give you a clue – bloody excellent). #SaintsFC”
“Everyone moans about Djenepo but he always puts in one hell of a shift. You can’t say he doesn’t give his all #saintsfc”
“Who is this Djenepo and where did he come from?! Having a blinder today!! #SaintsFC”
“Been really impressed with Djenepo today, work rate has been immense #saintsfc”
“Great performances from Djenepo and Salisu. Djenepo playing out of position as a RWB had a blinder, and Salisu on his full PL debut looked so calm and composed at the back. Showed he had a turn of pace as well I thought which is something we have missed at the back! #SaintsFC”
