For Southampton fans and players, voting for their standout performer of the season must have been pretty difficult, with a number of names impressing week after week, in particular since Ralph Hasenhuttl took the helm in December.
Nevertheless, there had to be a winner and Nathan Redmond took home both awards on Tuesday night, with the 5 ft 8 speedster having gone from strength to strength under his new manager’s tutelage this campaign.
The 25-year-old has eight strikes and six assists to his name in all competitions this term – his best goal contribution tally for the Saints to date – and has worked his socks off in Hasenhuttl’s high-tempo approach.
Has Jack Stephens unfairly been made a scapegoat at Southampton? The Ugly Inside discusses in the video below…
The former Norwich man has made an impressive 37 league appearances for the St Mary’s Stadium outfit and will be looking forward to the visit from relegated Huddersfield this weekend with the hope that he can make it 38/38.
Here’s what the Southampton faithful had to say to the rapid winger on Twitter after he scooped the individual awards…
