Romeu tries to find the positives in Southampton’s season, fans react

This season will be one to forget for Southampton, regardless of whether they retain their Premier League status or not.

The coastal club have been in a relegation battle for some time, and plenty of fans are already resigned to dropping into the Championship.

At the moment, Mark Hughes and his men sit four points from safety with four games left to play, and they have matches against Bournemouth, Everton, Swansea City and champions Manchester City coming up.

Southampton are yet to taste victory in the league since Hughes was appointed in March, and the disappointment continues at the weekend when they were beaten 2-0 by Chelsea in the semi-finals of the FA Cup.

Oriol Romeu, who has played in all four of the club’s 34 Premier League games this season, is trying to grasp onto some optimism.

On Twitter, the defensive midfielder called for unity between the players and the fans, which sparked an interesting reaction from the club’s following.
