Southampton fans are far from happy with comments from Nathan Redmond ahead of their F.A Cup semi-final this weekend.
The Saints will travel to Wembley on Sunday to play Leicester City for a place in the final. Despite losing 3-0 to West Bromwich Albion on Monday, the St. Mary’s Stadium outfit will at least be happy to be playing a side who themselves are struggling for form in the Foxes – they have lost their last two games (lcfc.co.uk).
Redmond was speaking ahead of the clash, and he was discussing the contrast with Southampton’s last semi-final appearance in 2018. On that occasion, they were beaten 2-0 by Chelsea, and the £16.2m-valued 27-year-old (Transfermarkt) said that at the time there was no aspiration for success amongst the Saints players, although now they are in a far better position to prevail.
Will Southampton reach the final?
These comments were shared on Twitter by @SaintsExtra, and it is fair to say the fans were disappointed. They took to the social media platform to share their thoughts.
Let’s see what the fans had to say about the comments from Redmond below
“Appreciate his honesty but what a disgrace. In a semi final and no aspiration to succeed?!!”
“This is throwing it on the line. Saying how up for it everyone is and how good the atmosphere is after a 3-0 spanking by a poor team means if we don’t turn up then we have some very big questions to answer.”
“He knows people actually watched the West Brom match right!?”
“Imagine saying that out loud in any other job? Let alone a well paid one.”
“how can he say this after the wba game”
In other news, Southampton fans slammed this man against West Brom.
