Hasenhuttl: “I think we didn’t have our best evening
FOOTBALL-Nairobi, Kenya 27 December 23:18 GMT
Southampton new head coach Ralph Hasenhuttl said the players didn’t have the best evening and gave up their lead from Nathan Redmond very easily with Felipe Anderson bagging a brace at the St. Mary’s stadium today.
“I think we didn’t have our best evening. Too many players didn’t perform how they did the last week or the week before, and although we didn’t we had a chance to win which is the good thing,” Hasenhuttl was quoted by nbcsports.com
“You see what I tell my players, that this is the Premier League and if you make easy mistakes like we did on the second goal then you don’t deserve to win. First goal you can defend better. It was too easy how we gave our 1-0 lead away.”……
“I am not worried but I know in the Premier League if not everything works in the right direction then it is easy to lose games,” Hasenhuttl said.
“That is what we have seen today. But we also showed in the last week that we can also be the team which sets the power in the last 15 minutes like we did against Arsenal or against Huddersfield. I am not afraid about what will follow in the next few weeks.
“We knew we have a very good tough schedule in the next few weeks. That is the Premier League. We know it is a long journey until the end of the season and to save us in this division it will take all of the games we have.
“I guarantee that we work very hard until the end and then we will see what we will get.”
