Southampton midfielder Mario Lemina impressed before illness forced him off in his side’s 2-0 defeat against Liverpool at St Mary’s on Sunday, and Manchester United fans have urged their club to sign the 24-year-old.
The Gabon international has struggled with injury since joining the south coast outfit from Juventus during the summer transfer window, but he showed the ability he does have throughout the first-half against Jurgen Klopp’s side.
However, he was forced off 12 minutes into the second period because he was ill, but United supporters saw enough of the African midfielder to know that he would be a good signing for them in the future, especially with Michael Carrick retiring and doubts over the futures of Marouane Fellaini and Ander Herrera.
They took to social media to give their thoughts on Lemina, and while one said he’s “better than what we have”, another said “I’d 100% have him”.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
I would take Lemina at United tbh ??♂️
