Ralph Hasenhuttl, Southampton’s manager apologised to the clubs supporters.
“My reaction is that I must apologise for this performance. I take 100% responsibility for what happened today,” Southampton FC Manager Hasenhuttl said.
“This was absolutely no-go in any way and I want to say that I am proud of the fans – they were staying in the stadium until the end of the game – because it was not easy to watch it for anybody who is following us. I think they did it quite well until the end to stay here and to stay with us. We have to apologise for what happened today and stand up again. You can call it helpless, you can call it whatever you want. It was a disaster. In my entire life, I haven’t had a game like this and I also thought that this cannot happen. It’s 12 or 13 years now as a head coach and it was an experience I never had in my life so far.”
The apology came after last nights live TV game as Leicester City totally destroyed Southampton nicknamed the Saints.
It was not a Saintish performance though as three records were broken on the night.
Saint’s player Ryan Bertrand became the first player in the Premiership to be sent of by way of VAR, whilst Leicester City now holds the most away goal record in the Premiership since it formed in 1992.
It was also the worst result in the Saint’s 134-year existence.
Clearly a night Southampton fans will wish to forget.
