Many Southampton fans were far from happy with the performance of Nathan Redmond during their FA Cup semi-final defeat on Sunday.
The Saints were in action against Leicester City at Wembley as they attempted to reach the final of the competition. While it has been a difficult few months for Southampton, their FA Cup run has been their saving grace. However, they failed to muster even a single shot on target against the Foxes as they lost 1-0 (SofaScore) – quite simply, that is just not good enough.
Many supporters were disappointed with the performance of Redmond in particular. The 27-year-old started in the unfamiliar position of centre-forward and it was quite clear he was uncomfortable in that role. He completed only nine passes and failed to have much of an impact on the game, not even recording a single shot.
Was Redmond the worst player on the pitch vs Leicester?
These fans were far from happy with the display of the former Norwich City man, and they took to social media platform Twitter to share their thoughts, with one disgruntled supporter even dubbing him “useless”.
Let’s see what the fans had to say about Redmond below
“Next season Redmond and Bertrand should be sold. Don’t add anything and won’t be missed.”
“Very very poor…… Bertrand, Redmond, Diallo – simply not good enough.”
“Any manager who thinks playing Redmond as a striker needs questioning, Puel did it and was hung out to dry for it. He adds nothing, terrible player who has a handful of good games in amongst an avalanche of mediocrity”
“I think it proved that we only have 6/7 players in the squad of prem standards at this point in their careers… Redmond, Djenepo, Diallo, Bertrand, Walcott, Bednarek not good enough.. such a massive clear out needed .. jury’s out on Ralph”
“Danny, you are never going to score with Djenepo, Walcott and Redmond in midfield. Utterly useless and embarrassing. Also tell Forster to come for corners over 7ft tall with hands up rarely leaves the ground. Cheers”
“Djenepo, Diallo, Redmond and Ings, all must go as attitude is not good with them in the camp, I feel that they are no longer committed to SFC”
In other news, this man has been urged to leave Southampton.
