Southampton fans react as Mario Lemina tweets he is “disgusted” after Liverpool loss

Southampton midfielder Mario Lemina posted on his official Twitter account on Sunday that he was “disgusted” and he apologised following the 2-0 defeat against Liverpool at St Mary’s on Sunday, and Saints fans were quick to respond to the message.

The 24-year-old was arguably his side’s best player in the opening 45 minutes, but it was clear to see that he was struggling with illness at the start of the second period and he was eventually replaced in the 57th minute by Sofiane Boufal.

The former Juventus man tweeted “I am so disgusted. Sorry…” following the end of a match that left the south coast outfit back in the relegation zone after they had climbed out of it with a 3-2 win against West Bromwich Albion at the Hawthorns the previous weekend.

Southampton supporters took to social media to reply to the Gabon international, and while one said “if only the other players showed as much desire and bottle as you do Mario”, another told him “you did all you could”.
