Southampton fans are far from happy after Tony Adams revealed Ralph Hasenhuttl previously approached him in regards to joining the Saints’ backroom staff.
The south-coast outfit have had a very poor start to the season. Other than an 8-0 victory over Newport County in the League Cup, they are yet to win a single game during the 90 minutes.
With just four goals in six Premier League fixtures, they are struggling to cause enough attacking threat, although they have conceded just seven times which indicates their defence is perhaps more solid than fans expected (Sky Sports).
Arsenal legend Adams is of course known as one of the Premier League’s best ever centre-backs (90min.com), so perhaps he could have buffed the team’s backline up even more with his insight.
As per the former player himself, Hasenhuttl wanted him to become part of the backroom staff at St. Mary’s Stadium (via The Evening Standard).
This news has not pleased the Southampton supporters though, some of whom believe he would not have brought very much to the role at all.
Would you want Tony Adams at the club?
The comments were shared on Twitter by @SaintsExtra, and they attracted plenty of attention from the fans. They took to the social media platform to share their thoughts.
Let’s see what the fans had to say about the comments from Adams below
“Shame, Ralph certainly needs some help.”
“Dodged a bullet there…..”
“And I thought bringing on Long today was the low point of Ralph’s coaching career”
“Dear God, imagine if Tony Adams had ended up in our dug out with Ralph”
“Tony Adams dropping the bomb of Ralph offering him a job”
“If Ralph offered Adams any job at Southampton, he should walk”
