Southampton fans have been put through the ringer this summer, having already seen three of their top players head for the exit. By and large, the Saints’ fans have taken the exodus with good grace, but it seems the latest man to express a desire to leave has really irked the patient fans.
Liverpool have nabbed both Rickie Lambert and Adam Lallana, and look set to do battle with Southampton over the signing of Dejan Lovren. The Croatian has recently made public his desire to leave the Saints, stating a lack of ambition and direction as his reasons for wanting out.
It’s fair to say the Southampton support haven’t taken his announcement with good grace, accusing Lovren of ‘disrespect’.
Southampton legend, Matt Le Tissier is less than impressed by Lovren’s actions, and has the backing of a number of Saints fans.
As is tradition, many fans took to Twitter to vent their discontent, and here is a snapshot of the reaction.
@mattletiss7 is spot on with Lovren. Far too many excuses from our club centre back to push his move. Disgusting and no class

I hope Liverpool don’t sign that Lovren just because he’s a snide.

Our players think that they have so much power, they are under contract. Lovren would be nothing without us, how did you do at Lyon Dejan? — Charlie Hills (@CharlieHills23) July 6, 2014
Shame on Lovren for trying to force a move from Southampton after 1 good season and badmouthing the club #NoClass
