Some Southampton fans have taken to Twitter to react after it was confirmed by the club that Guido Carrillo had joined Leganes on a season-long loan deal.
The Argentine was signed from Monaco back in January 2018 for a then club-record fee of £19m, although his career at St Mary’s hasn’t really gone as anyone would’ve hoped it would.
Carrillo has made just 10 appearances for the Saints, scoring a grand total of zero goals – he has just two assists to show for his efforts in a Southampton shirt, working out at £9.5m per goal involvement.
The 28-year-old spent the entirety of last season on loan with Leganes as well, scoring six goals for the Spanish side, and he will now join up once again with Mauricio Pellegrino – the man who signed him for Southampton.
Let’s see how the Saints supporters on Twitter reacted to the news regarding the expensive flop…
Never given much of a chance! Why is the head of recruitment still in his job

Nooo! Just sell him. ?

Good luck to Carrillo. If he scores more goals this season for Leganes, it gives us an opportunity to properly sell him next summer. Still a good chunk of his wages offset by a loan fee. #SaintsFC

All things considered I reckon Guido Carrillo will go down as the worst #Saintsfc signing off all-time
