Southampton fans have been reacting to reports claiming that Eddie Howe turned down a move to Celtic as he wants to take over the Saints instead.
The previous campaign was a mixed one for the Saints. They started the season well and even reached the F.A Cup semi-finals. However, they ended up losing 1-0 to Leicester at Wembley after a lacklustre display, while they finished in 15th place in the Premier League table. However, it seems the St. Mary’s Stadium outfit will persevere with Ralph Hasenhuttl as boss.
Former Bournemouth boss Howe looked certain to join Celtic, but an agreement fell through (The Telegraph). Now, according to Football Insider, Howe decided against a move to Glasgow as he has his heart set on replacing Hasenhuttl at Southampton instead.
Would you want Howe as manager?
The news was shared on Twitter by @SaintsExtra, and it attracted plenty of attention from the club’s supporters, and they took to the social media platform to share their thoughts.
Let’s see what the fans had to say about the Howe news below
“We’re gargantuan haha”
“There really are some jokers out there”
“Imagine Howe at Saints, a manager who loves spending big money on unsuccessful player (ibe, solanke, gradel etc) It would not go well”
“Hang on. Have I missed something? I thought we had a manager? I’ve only just got out of bed.”
