Southampton fans are gutted after Ralph Hasenhuttl confirmed Oriol Romeu will be unavailable for the rest of the season following an injury sustained against Leeds United on Tuesday.
£7.2m-valued Romeu (Transfermarkt) started the match against the Whites as the Saints lost 3-0. However, after 70 minutes, he was forced off and was replaced by Moussa Djenepo. Speaking ahead of Southampton’s match against Everton, Hasenhuttl revealed Romeu has fractured his ankle and will need surgery. He will miss a minimum of three months as a result, and will therefore be unavailable for the rest of the campaign.
Will Southampton cope without Romeu?
Romeu is the just the latest injury for Southampton on a list that is beginning to grow out of control. Upon hearing the news, which was shared on Twitter by journalist Dan Sheldon, the fans were far from happy, and they took to the social media platform to share their thoughts.
Let’s see what the fans had to say about Romeu below
“i hate it here.”
“We are so screwed.”
“Grim. If nothing else, I suppose it offers Tella and hopefully Jankewitz more chances, but it’s hardly the ideal circumstance for young players to adjust to the level. Never, ever known an injury situation quite so severe…”
“Just our luck”
“Horrendous news this. See you on the TSP tomorrow !!”
